PLANS for 11 flats to be built on Walton seafront have been agreed.

Tendring Council has rubber-stamped the application for the apartments in The Parade.

Building work on the flats has to start within the next three years.

Frinton and Walton Town Council objected to the development, saying it was an overdevelopment of the site.

They recommended reducing the application to six apartments, but the district council gave developers the green light to build all 11.
