Have your say!
The Chelmsford Garden Community Zone 1 Planning Application Exhibition is available to view at chelmsfordgardencommunity.co.uk. You can make comments via the online form, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to us at Freepost JTP – no stamp required. The deadline for comments is Friday 30 September.
On the first evening of the online exhibition, Monday 22 August, we held an introductory Zoom presentation followed by Questions & Answers. The Zoom presentation was recorded and can be viewed below.
The Application is being brought forward by Ptarmigan Land in accordance with the emerging CGC Development Framework Document (DFD) which sets out the Vision and Framework for the Garden Community. It will also comply with the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) which sets out what infrastructure needs to be delivered, by whom, when and at what cost and will be governed by an overarching legally binding Planning Framework Agreement (PFA).
Chelmsford Garden Community will be a thriving new settlement offering the best of town and country living. It will deliver new housing with healthy placemaking principles, new employment opportunities, a supporting movement network, social and recreational facilities and quality open spaces for people and nature. It will build on the success of the new neighbourhoods of Beaulieu and Channels and be a Garden Community that meets the needs of the growing City.
The Garden Community will be designed in collaboration with new and existing residents, with opportunities for the community to engage in long-term stewardship, ultimately contributing to the legacy of a sustainable community.
The masterplanning and promotion of the Garden Community is being led by a Developer Consortium Countryside Zest and Ptarmigan Land in collaboration with Chelmsford City Council (CCC) and Essex County Council (ECC).
A Development Framework Document, which sets out the principles of the new community’s land uses, access, and landscaping principles, has been submitted to CCC for their approval.
The Infrastructure Delivery Plan, which sets out the framework for what infrastructure needs to be provided is also pending approval by CCC.
