Regional housebuilder, Denbury Homes, has been granted planning permission for a new development in the picturesque village of Little Easton in Essex.
Located behind the Stag Inn on Duck Street, Little Easton, the development, which will be known as Fallows Watch, will offer 44 new homes in a range of sizes and styles, including some bungalows and 18 affordable properties. The development is planned within an attractive landscaped setting with new tree planting complementing retained woodland.
Denbury Homes is renowned for delivering high quality, traditionally designed, rural developments, ensuring the new homes will reflect local styles and materials.
Senior Land Manager, Simon Wasley said: “We have always prided ourselves on delivering high quality homes, in desirable locations. Little Easton is a quintessential Essex village which fits this description perfectly. We are very excited about the opportunity to bring much needed new homes to such a lovely village.”
Little Easton was mentioned in the Domesday Book and the whole area is steeped in history, from a roman fortification, a tenancy of 19 years by HG Wells to becoming the HQ of the USAAF 386th Bomber Group during WWII.
Located close to the delightful market town of Great Dunmow and with easy access to Bishops Stortford for work, schooling or leisure, the thriving village is also only six miles from Stansted Airport and eight miles from the M11. Direct rail links to London Liverpool Street and Cambridge make for a straightforward commute to larger cities.
As part of the agreement, Denbury Homes will contribute over £160,000 to the local transport and education facilities through Section 106 payments.
Planning Manager, Robert Eburne added: “Alongside building homes we are also committed to supporting the communities they become a part of. The scheme incorporates 18 affordable homes to meet local needs including 2 wheelchair accessible homes reserved for local families. There are also three low-cost commercial units for local businesses looking for new accommodation.”
Work is expected to start on site in Spring 2024 with homes on sale from late Autumn 2024.
