EX-England cricketer Ronni Irani showed an interest in a Dunmow planning application by turning up to the Saffron Walden council offices during a development control meeting.
The planning application up for scrutiny was the proposed demolition of 39 The Causeway to make way for seven new houses.
Mr Irani was present at the meeting and sat next to the developer's representative, John Biswell, during a lengthy debate between district councillors.
