Cuton Hall Lane, Chelmer Village Way, Springfield, Chelmsford
Expressions of interest are sought for this freehold site
Chelmsford, the County Town of Essex, is located approximately 30 miles from London and 12 miles from Junction 28 of the M25.
The site is situated approximately 2 miles from the City centre on the junction of Cuton Hall Lane and Chelmer Village Way on the edge of the Chelmer Village residential area, adjacent to the B & Q retail store, and close to Chelmsford Business Park and the Dukes Park employment area.
This predominantly level site has an extensive road frontage and is capable, subject to planning, of providing a developable area in the order of 1.86 acres depending upon the form of development and its ecological impact. The area of land to be sold is edged in yellow on the attached plan for identification purposes only.
A PRELIMINARY OVERVIEW OF ECOLOGY –SUBJECT TO PLANNING CONSENT BEING OBTAINED AND FORMAL APPROVAL OF NATURAL ENGLAND
Both an Ecological Appraisal and Reptile Survey have been carried out and the attached site plan indicates the mitigation area that has been discussed with Natural England. The site plan is preliminary in form and seeks to identify an extent of additional land required to that already allocated, adjacent to a previously agreed area of habitat for Great Crested Newts. Formal approval and agreement with Natural England will be required once a planning application seeking development of the site has been submitted to Chelmsford City Council. Preliminary discussions held with Natural England have sought to reflect a proposed residential use of the site. The area required for mitigation is likely to vary depending upon the form of residential development, or if the land is developed for an alternative use.
Freehold together with shared ecology rights to the mitigation land shown on the attached site plan – see link below.
The site is included within the area of land allocated in the Chelmsford Borough Local Development Framework as Open Space. However, planning permission was granted in September 2014 on the adjoining site, which was also within the Open Space allocation, for the development of a children’s day nursery. A submission has been made to the City Council in response to their “Call For Sites 2014” that the site is suitable for allocation for residential or commercial development.
