Masterplan submission for Strategic Growth Site 2: West Chelmsford

Crest Nicholson, a national home building company, have submitted plans for a new development at land to the north of Roxwell Road. It is known locally as Warren Farm. 

We have categorised this site as a Strategic Growth Site. This means we must approve a developer’s masterplan before they can make a formal planning application. 

Crest Nicholson has now submitted a masterplan, reference 18/00001/MAS. We have labelled the site in our new Local Plan as “Strategic Growth Site 2: West Chelmsford”. 

Masterplans are high level documents, which set out what we expect from a new development. We use masterplans to help create excellent places to live, work and enjoy, and which are suitable for the individual site. The masterplan will help us to make sure the development delivers what the area needs, while giving the developer some flexibility.

As part of the masterplan approval process, Crest Nicholson held a public exhibition place in November 2018.

Even if you were unable to attend the exhibition, you can still download:
