Council opposes Next warehouse plan

Plans put forward by retail giant Next for a warehouse north of Dowding Way, Waltham Abbey, are being opposed by Waltham Abbey Town Council.

Councillors voted unanimously at the last council meeting to object stating that the suggested benefits of the planned development are outweighed by the environmental issues.

The council is also concerned that there is no mention in the planning application for upgrading work at junction 26 of the M25, as indicated in the emerging Local Plan.
