Plans for Essex homes development announced

Plans for Essex homes development announced

Hundreds of hectares of Essex countryside could be put aside to build housing developments for those looking to buy property for sale in Essex.

Plans have been submitted to turn the land on the edge of Greenstead, into a business park as well as a large development of homes. There will also be a 'research hub' where parts will be available for sale to local firms and will be linked to the University of Essex. 

A bypass will also be built as part of the plans which will link the A120 and the A133 while a park and ride facility and extensions to local transport links will also be built. 

Brian Morgan, from ADP architects, which is in charge of the site, told the Colchester Gazette: "We have got to choose the best and most sustainable places, because, if we don’t, we will have fractured communities.

"This puts high-paid work and people in the same place and there’s a ripple effect which would benefit Colchester and Clacton."

The plans will need to receive full planning permission before work can begin.
