Garden centre site on Green Belt to be uses for housing

A former garden centre Green Belt site could see more than 30 homes built on a site next to a former dump.
Epping Forest District Council approved an application to build 33 homes at the Chimes Garden Centre.
?
The proposals are the fourth dealing with the site to go before the council in recent years.
?
If the developers go ahead with this application they will not have to remove the landfill.
?
However, officers studying the site explained that “significant work is still needed. This is to ensure that the new houses are safe from contamination from the adjoining landfill.”
?
The land above the buried rubbish will be used as an “amenity area” for residents. This is once the hardstanding goes and they’ve completed the landscaping.
?
The proposals are for four one-bed flats, one two-bed flat, 23 three-bed flats and five four-bed flats.
?
In total, five three-bed flats will be affordable, almost three times fewer than the 40 per cent suggested in government guidelines.
