Masterplan Submission for Extensive Housing Development in South Woodham Ferrers

The masterplan for a new housing development north of South Woodham Ferrers, has recently been submitted and approved. The site promoters are Countryside Properties, Essex County Council Property and Bellway/Speakman. The site promoters will now prepare and submit an outline planning application and a reserved matters planning application containing more in depth details. Masterplans are a crucial part of the building development process, moulding and shaping the living spaces loved by many.

The function of masterplans is to :-

  • Display how a development relates to the surrounding area
  • Pinpoint the location of community facilities and access points
  • Indicate which parts of the site will be developed and which will remain undeveloped

Houses, Primary Schools, Nurseries & Shops Proposed

The plan stays in line with the Local Plan, which stipulates what the development will include. The South Woodham Ferrers development will include approx 1,000 new homes, of varying size, incorporating affordable options. There will be 5 serviced plots intended for travelling Showpeople and 2,900 square metres of business and retail floorspace. A new primary school and nurseries are also possibly in the pipeline catering for young families. Various other community facilities are planned, along with changes and upgrades to general infrastructure.

Local landscape and wildlife, along with historic features and buildings will be respected, and flood management is also on the agenda, This early stage masterplan is the result of many consultations with professionals and the public, covering the areas from Willow Grove in the west to land around Bushy Hill in the east. Objections have been raised and are being looked at carefully, as some residents say the development will ‘split the town in two’.
