Land South of Stortford Road
Great Dunmow

Overview

Linden Homes is preparing an outline planning application for up to 60 dwellings with all matters reserved except access on land south of B1256 (Stortford Road) and west of Buttleys Lane, Great Dunmow. This means that the only matters of detail seeking planning approval at this time are the principle of the development and the proposed access arrangements to the Site. All remaining details will be agreed via a subsequent ‘reserved matters’ planning application.

Uttlesford District Council’s emerging Local Plan (which has been submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination) proposes to allocate the Site for the development of approximately 60 dwellings under policy GtDUN 4. Linden Homes has developed the proposals in accordance with the criteria set out in this allocation as well as the planning policies contained in the Great Dunmow Neighbourhood Plan.

The emerging Local Plan also allocates neighbouring sites to the west of Great Dunmow, namely land west of Woodside Way (Uttlesford planning reference UTT/13/2107/OP) and land south of Stortford Road (reference UTT/18/2574/OP), both of which have either planning permission or a live planning application relating to them.

Linden Homes has prepared an illustrative masterplan to indicate how development of the Site could come forward to respond to the character of the area and deliver new family homes in a sustainable location on the edge of Great Dunmow.

Illustrative Masterplan

An illustrative masterplan has been prepared. The precise details will be subject to approval at the later ‘reserved matters’ stage, following the grant of outline planning permission, but the illustrative plan shown on this page is intended to demonstrate how the Site could be developed, taking account of its constraints, to deliver a well-designed scheme comprised of an appropriate mix of dwelling types, sizes and tenures. The reserved matters application will be subject to further public consultation in due course.

The illustrative masterplan includes the following key features:

  • 50 dwellings in total, of which 30 would be market sale and 20 would be affordable.
  • A good mix of property types, suitable for families, first time buyers and the elderly.
  • 3 bungalows are provided to meet the specific need for single-storey homes for the ageing population.
  • A Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) is provided, including an attenuation pond in the south-west corner of the site set within landscaped open space, to ensure there is no increase in flooding.
  • New dwellings are set back from the edges of the site to protect the amenity of neighbouring properties.
  • Retention and supplementary planting on the Site boundaries.
  • A spine road retaining the key view across the Site from the north-east corner to the open space and SuDS feature on the south-west.

The Site

Access Arrangements

As the only matter of detail that will be approved at this stage is the proposed means of vehicular access, Linden Homes has produced the above drawing to show the detailed design in this respect.

The vehicular access would be located on the northern Site boundary with Stortford Road, approximately equidistant from the north-west and north-east corner of the Site. A ghost island junction would be constructed on Stortford Road, comprised of a slip road for vehicles travelling from the A120 roundabout and turning right into the Site to allow passing traffic to flow freely. Pedestrian and cycle access is proposed via the north-east corner of the Site, to provide ease of access to Buttleys Lane and the Flitch Way and the new bus stops and other facilities, including a new primary school, that will be provided as part of the new development on land west of Woodside Way to the north.

Next Steps

Technical Evidence Base

Linden Homes is preparing an extensive suite of technical evidence documents to fully identify and take account of the site constraints and opportunities. This includes evidence gathering in relation to:

  • Air Quality
  • Noise
  • Ecology
  • Archaeology
  • Heritage
  • Flood Risk and Drainage
  • Highways
  • Landscape
  • Trees

An EIA screening report is also being prepared which considers the cumulative impacts of development in the area taking account of all of the above specialisms.
