Plainview Planning have submitted an application to Maldon District Council for up to 75 market and affordable dwellings, a village centre of up to 1,000 sq m of flexible commercial and community floorspace and a 1.8 ha village green.
It is a unique opportunity for the village of North Fambridge.
The village is currently disjointed with two urban masses, one centred on the train station and the other being closer to the river. Whilst North Fambridge does have a number of services including a public house, two marinas and train station with frequent services to London, the village does currently lack a centre that could act as a community focus.
The proposed scheme seeks to link these two urban areas with a new village centre on the land in between them. The new centre would be at the heart of the village and would comprise flexible commercial and community space which has the potential to generate between 55 and 100 full time equivalent jobs.
Plainview Planning provided planning consultancy, urban design and project management services on the project.
