Catesby Estates have submitted outline plans for the construction of up to 116 new homes, including 30% affordable on 14.4 acres of land known as Plains Farm, Colchester.
Plains Farm forms part of a new neighbourhood situated off Ipswich Road at the edge of Colchester. The site has a boundary with ‘The Orchards’, a residential development currently under construction.
The proposed development site is located in a highly sustainable location on the edge of Colchester, close to existing services, amenities and a wide range of employment opportunities. This site offers the opportunity to deliver a mix of housing in a location where the need for new housing is high.
The application will undergo a statutory consultation period, where anyone who wishes to make their views known on the development can submit their comments to Tendring District Council, before it goes before the planning committee later this year.
Should the application be approved, Catesby will then work with housebuilders to deliver a range of new homes, with first residents taking occupation during 2021.
