Land Securities (Landsec) who have a 100% ownership interest in the site are giving residents the opportunity to have their say on plans for a garden community at Easton Park.

Easton Park is an opportunity to provide a new settlement for Uttlesford designed using Garden Community principles, with transport connectivity and minimal impact on existing settlements.


 

How to get involved

People are invited to make their views known using a website prepared by Landsec. This site will help to provide information about Easton Park and allows local residents to give their feedback on the proposals.

The feedback from the consultation will be handled by Landsec and will help to create a more defined plan for the site, which will then be subject to further public consultation later this year.

 


Additional information

Uttlesford District Council expects any garden communities to set a standard for modern living, with well-designed homes, jobs, services and community facilities supporting a high quality of life and creating healthy, safe and vibrant places. The garden communities would also add to the future economic success of the District and wider area.

Whilst recognising the ambition and scale of the proposals, the council wants the settlements to be built to garden community principles. A key element in achieving these principles is to ensure essential infrastructure such as schools, roads and leisure facilities, including opportunities for new country parks, are built at the appropriate time. In order to do this the council has employed a team of people who will look to bring maximum benefits from the new settlements to new and existing communities.

The council's team is looking at a wide range of delivery options for how to bring the communities forward. The decision on which options to use will develop over the coming months as part of the negotiations with landowners. The final decision on the best approach for each garden community will be made in due course.
