Politics / Wed 22nd Mar 2023 at 09:57am

THE 2023/24 Annual Delivery Plan for Essex Housing, Essex County Council’s (ECC) award-winning in-house developer, has been approved. 

The plan sets out Essex Housing’s approach to delivering new housing across the county, with schemes being brought forward in Colchester, Harlow, Epping Forest, Maldon, Chelmsford and Castle Point.

Essex Housing was setup by ECC in 2016 and its schemes make best use of publicly-owned land to provide new homes and community buildings, to improve local areas and fund vital public services. 

The team are delivering good quality housing for adults with disabilities, older people, affordable and private sale, as well as new community facilities.

The current Essex Housing programme will deliver 1,028 homes and seven new community assets – around half of the homes are for older people, people with disabilities or general needs affordable. Of these, 357 properties already have planning permission and a further 70 are currently awaiting determination.

Cllr Lesley Wagland OBE, ECC Cabinet Member for Economic Renewal, Infrastructure and Planning, said: “We are very proud of the work of Essex Housing as they continue to deliver a programme of housing and community assets that residents can be truly proud of. Today’s decision to approve the Annual Delivery Plan is another great example of our commitment to the levelling-up agenda, taking an active role in providing much-needed homes and shaping great neighbourhoods for our residents while providing value for money to the taxpayer.”
