Proposals

 


The Fairfield Partnership can deliver many of the new homes that Uttlesford District Council needs over the coming years, and the rate of housebuilding can be phased over time to respond to future housing targets as dictated by the District Council. This would take some of the pressure off Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow and other locations which have previously delivered housing growth and, despite infrastructure limitations and existing committed growth, are already under pressure to deliver more.

By meeting some of the District's housing needs at land to the north east of Elsenham, The Fairfield Partnership can deliver major infrastructure improvements to support the new development and benefit existing residents.

As part of any new housing growth, The Fairfield Partnership would deliver:
• Unrivalled access to public transport with significant improvements to local bus services
and to Elsenham station.
• New link roads and improvements to existing roads in the area.
• A Green Ring around the edge of the site, forming a strategic gap with the historic village
of Henham.
• Open spaces including a range of sport and recreation facilities.
• A new primary school, shops and services including new health and recreation facilities to
provide local facilities and address the existing shortfall in capacity locally.
• Much-needed affordable and family housing for local people.
• New employment space with the potential to create a wide range of new jobs and promote
local enterprise.
• New waste water treatment facility to serve the new homes and potentially the existing
community. As with many places in Uttlesford, the existing system is nearly at capacity.
• Highly sustainable new buildings promoting reduced water and energy use.
