Scott Properties has now submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to Tendring District Council before a formal application is launched as part of the same application.
According to the Government website, this is when an applicant asks the local planning authority for its opinion on what information needs to be included in an Environmental Statement (ES).
A response will help form a hybrid planning application expected later this year.
The submission says the developer will seek full planning permission for 160 age restricted bungalows and an 80 bed care home.

The site is designated as countryside in Tendring’s Local Plan. However, according to the emerging Local Plan, the site is allocated as a Strategic Allocated Mixed Use site (SAMU).
Tendring District Council first confirmed a proposed development “comprising approximately 1,000 dwellings, new school and potential doctor’s surgery” to the south of Holland Road, Little Clacton, would need EIA screening in 2016, according to an EIA scoping letter from the developer.
Since 2016, the number of dwellings has been reduced to approximately 900.
According to the letter, the environmental topics to be scoped include socio economics, traffic, air quality, noise and vibration, landscape and visual impact, ecology and biodiversity net gain.
The assessment will expire on September 24.
