North Chelmsford: Beaulieu
A development of up to 3,600 dwellings and mixed use floorspace (up to 62,300sq. m. gross) including a new business park, retail, hotel, leisure, open space, education and community facilities. The scheme is to be delivered in phases and will be framed by a comprehensive scheme of landscaping to integrate the development into its setting.
New highways, including a radial distributor road and changes to existing highways including roundabout access from Essex Regiment Way, upgrading of Boreham Interchange and a priority junction from White Hart Lane will be delivered alongside public transport infrastructure.
Now that the principle and general parameters of the development have been set by the outline planning permission, full details of layout, house types, road networks, landscaping, etc. will be set by the Reserved Matters applications (those with an REM suffix).
