INITIAL proposals for a ‘Garden Village’ development with up to 700 homes, exemplar new facilities for existing local sports clubs as well as the potential for a primary / secondary school and retail outlets on land on the edge of North Weald village are to be presented to North Weald parish councillors on Monday, April 24.
The proposals for the North Weald Golf Club land, off Rayley Lane, are set to be put out for public consultation in May. Further details will be announced in due course.
Quinn Estates has drawn up the ‘North Weald Park’ proposals which it describes as a “once in a generation opportunity to create a mixed use development with an incredible sporting and education legacy for Essex and Epping Forest district”.
Some 100 acres are included in the project which proposes private and affordable housing, a new home for North Weald Scouts as well as brand new facilities for other local sporting clubs in addition to a potential education hub and an 18-acre country park.
Quinn Estates’ chairman Mark Quinn said: “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to present details of our proposal to North Weald Bassett Parish Council.
“North Weald Park is a sensitively designed project with the plans having been drawn up with the local community at the forefront of our thoughts.
“We are very much looking to engage and work with the local community to deliver a bespoke and high quality development proposal.
“North Weald Park would not only provide much-needed housing for the Epping Forest district, and North Weald in particular, but also purpose-built bases for local sporting organisations.”
He added: “We will shortly be undertaking our initial public consultation. We look forward to working with and for the North Weald community and hope local people will express their views so that we can work together with them and ensure that the whole area can benefit from what we are proposing.”
