Welcome to the Public Consultation pages for West Mersea.
Brierley Paddocks is identified as being suitable for residential and community development within the emerging Colchester Borough Council Local Plan, which defines where new development should be located to provide for the needs of the Borough up to 2033.
We are pleased with Colchester Council’s decision to approve our plans for new homes and community facilities at Brierley Paddocks. Being Essex-based, local projects like these are close to our hearts, and we look forward to working with the council to help deliver new homes, including 30% affordable housing on site.
The scheme includes 100 new homes and 0.5 hectares of community/commercial use. In addition, there will be one vehicular access point onto East Road and pedestrian/cycle access to Seaview Avenue, alongside open space, a children’s play area, new footpath and cycle links and financial contributions towards local infrastructure. There’s been a great level of local interest and we are keen to work with the community, with our scheme providing contributions to support the improvements of facilities at Glebe Sports Ground and Mersea Island’s medical facilities.
Detailed proposals on what’s to come will be shared in the coming months and we anticipate that work will begin on site later this year.
