The redevelopment of the animal facility will be modernized with the goal of protecting and enhancing employment opportunities in the area as well as contributing positively to the economy.
In a statement prepared on behalf of the applicant, a spokesperson for Strutt and Parker said, “The proposals will serve to support the sustainable expansion of rural businesses in Bicknacre through sympathetic, high-quality redevelopment of the site.”
The existing access will be closed off by a new section of linear hedge and new pedestrian access will be provided from the main road to the site serving the new office building entrance.
There will also be 26 parking spaces, 10 bicycle parking spaces and three electric vehicle charging stations.
Plans are expected to go ahead after Chelmsford City Council gives its approval.
