Residential/Regeneration Chelmer Waterside, Chelmsford, Essex


Regeneration of a strategic underused brownfield site within Chelmsford City centre, including residential, commercial, landscaping and infrastructure improvements.

Key Points

  • 421 homes of high design quality working with PRP Architects.
  • Schemeinvolved proposals to redevelop one of the city centre's largest brownfield sites.
  • Over 100 affordable homes, 90% of which will be for affordable rent, negotiated with the local authority on a site specific basis.
  • The mixed use scheme will also deliver space for flexible commercial use, and also include new public open space that enhances and utilises the waterfront.


Resolution to grant planning permission achieved by unanimous decision in March 2017. The proposals will make the most of the sites' waterfront location and make a valuable contribution to the City’s market and affordable housing stock.
