Developer reveals community-focused plans for former North Weald
Golf Club site
 
Development plans for up to 690 homes and a host of community benefits including a primary school, shops and medical facilities on the edge of North Weald have been revealed.

Developer Quinn Estates and homebuilder Redrow Homes have submitted a joint planning application for the former North Weald Golf Club site off Rayley Lane.

Outline planning permission is being sought for up to 555 dwellings, including affordable and key worker homes, a 70-bed retirement development and 70-bed extra care / nursing care accommodation.

The application also details a two-form entry primary school with outdoor space and parking, a Special Educational Needs Centre, a 'local centre' with retail space and a community centre along with a sports hub with open-air pitches, a pavilion, facilities for scouts, office space, and a country park covering more than 25 acres.

A new roundabout onto the A414 is also proposed.

Full planning permission is being sought for 135 dwellings, including 40 per cent affordable housing, with access off Rayley Lane and internal circulation roads.

Quinn Estates' Development Director Hamish Buttle told Monday's North Weald Bassett Parish Council meeting that the planning application had been submitted.

Mr Buttle has been fully engaged with the parish council over several months about the inclusion of a new community hub for North Weald Bassett Parish Council and a new medical centre, which forms part of the development proposal.

Quinn Estates' Chairman Mark Quinn said: "This is a real opportunity to take a poor quality piece of land, which is not in agricultural use and is not viable in its current use, and deliver an exceptional scheme that helps address Epping Forest’s chronic housing shortage and widening affordability gap, whilst also delivering game-changing sporting, educational and community benefits for the people of the Epping Forest district and Essex.

"The fact that we are providing such significant education, sporting and community infrastructure together with an unprecedented 40 per cent affordable housing and substantial S106 contributions, probably explains the reason why nearly 1,000 people wrote letters of support - more support than any other site received during the council’s consultation process.

"We believe that what we are offering creates a very special circumstance and justifies developing this site ahead of any other site in the council’s draft Local Plan.

"With our reputation for doing what we say we do, and our track record for delivery, we look forward to working with the council and the local community to bring this exciting development forward during the planning application process over the next 12 months.”
