THREE oval shaped office towers with glass elevators and space for 615 parking spaces has been proposed for a site just southeast of the village of Elsenham, near to Molehill Green.

If planning permission is granted, the 11-storey, nine-storey and seven-storey towers will be built on the industrial estate at the Hall Road and Green Street junction.

Supporting documents for the build suggest that if a planned expansion of nearby Stansted Airport goes ahead it will "drive the desire for this type of development to fulfil the requirements of the local area by offering additional employment, along with the commercial interests of attracting local, national and international companies to the area. "

At two site inspections in May and July 2008 it was decided the junction could be upgraded to either a signalised crossroad or to a narrowed staggered crossroad to provide improved visibility and that a light should be placed on top of the tallest tower to warn incoming aircraft of it existence.

Trisail Towers will be visible from the Molehill Green Road and from Motts Lane and winter glimpses are likely from the north and east, and from the Tye Green area, but it is thought that planting of hedgerows will provide a screen as the towers will be built six metres below ground level.

Comments on the application can be made to Uttlesford District Council up until December 11.
