The final details of plans to build four new detached homes on grassland in Wix have been agreed.
The scheme for Ashcroft Ltd in Bradfield Road had already received outline planning permission from Tendring District Council (TDC).
Now the Council has approved scale, design and layout following amendments to reduce the bulk of the properties.
The site is also close to a Grade II listed building, Granary Barn, and that has been dealt with by a heritage statement and assessment which showed the new properties would not be harmful.
There was no objection from Essex County Council as highway authority and no other representations were received by TDC.
