Braintree

Location: Essex

A masterplan for a sustainable urban extension on the edge of Braintree. The proposals include up to 1600 new homes, employment uses, a new local centre, a primary school and an integrated Green Infrastructure strategy.

 

The site borders the Flitchway - a former railway line and now a Sustrans cycle route that sits within a green corridor. The Flitchway will be central to the design proposals as a unique piece of Green Infrastructure as well as a sustainable link to the town centre.

 

Our input has included an outline application for the whole site, a hybrid application on part of the site, a feasibility layout and a Planning Inquiry.
