Grosvenor has been appointed as the development partner for a planned 5,000-home garden village scheme on the north eastern edge of Essex.

The proposed new North Uttlesford Garden Community in Great Chesterford is moving forward after the district council included the site in its draft Local Plan earlier this summer.

Grosvenor will now work in partnership with the District Council, Great Chesterford Parish Council, local stakeholders and the community to develop initial ideas and its ‘first principles for success’ – helping to faciliate the delivery of a thriving new sustainable community.

Alex Robinson, Director at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, said: “The country’s housing shortage is threatening our ability to provide homes for the next generation. We must respond not just with more housing units, but great places that are home to people of mixed incomes, backgrounds and life stages.

“Closer, creative collaboration is required and I look forward to working with the Parish Council, the District Council and the local community to develop these proposals.”

Bidwells is providing planning and building consultancy services on the project.

Grosvenor is increasingly taking a major housing development schemes.

In Oxford, Grosvenor has a joint venture with the local authority to deliver up to 900 new homes with infrastructure and amenities in the new neighbourhood of Barton Park, where 40 per cent of homes will be social rented.

In Cambridge, as master developer, Grosvenor has helped deliver a neighbourhood development of 1,200 new homes with a new primary school and village centre, which borders a country park.
