MEDIA RELEASE
Issued: June 15, 2017
Public exhibition to be held over North Weald Park proposals

NOTE TO MEDIA: Any media planning on covering the exhibition are asked to attend on Friday evening or before 10am on Saturday when Quinn Estates chairman Mark Quinn will be available for interview.

Proposals for a Garden Village development of housing and a range of other local facilities are to go on show at North Weald Village Hall on Friday and Saturday, June 23 and 24.

The exhibition will be open between 5.30pm and 8pm on Friday (June 23) and from 9am until 11am on Saturday (June 24).

Developer Quinn Estates wants to listen to local people and incorporate their views in its planning application to be submitted to Epping Forest District Council in due course.

Quinn Estates has a demonstrable track record of delivery and working in partnership with communities.

The proposals are set to include plans for up to 750 homes on the former North Weald Golf Club site, which has closed, off Rayley Lane​.

Quinn Estates describes its 'North Weald Park' proposals as a "once in a generation opportunity to create a mixed use development with an incredible sporting and education legacy for Essex and Epping Forest District".

Over​ 100 acres are included in the project which proposes private and affordable housing (40 per cent of the total number of properties), a new home for North Weald Scouts as well as exemplar sporting facilities for other local clubs - Epping Youth Football Club and United Karate Association - in addition to an education hub and approximately 18.5-hectare/45-acre country park.

The site also has potential for a primary school, specialist secondary school and a Special Educational Needs centre, a community hub,  medical facilities - such as a GP surgery -  assisted living accommodation, office space, restaurants and local retail outlets.

Quinn Estates chairman Mark Quinn said: "This is a project which has the community at its heart. We want to submit plans which have the backing of local people.

"We recently presented an overview of our proposals to the Parish Council and told councillors that we want to draw up the best scheme possible for North Weald Bassett. 

"We need local residents to tell us what they want."

Mr Quinn added: "We're taking a site that's not viable in its previous use (as a golf course).

"Thousands of children will benefit from the proposed education and sporting facilities, there's a new scout hall. We're already starting (to get comments) and want to hear more. 

"Consultation is massively important to us. The more people we get involved and tell us what they want, the better the scheme we can achieve."
