A new garden suburb in Essex
Maldon is an historic coastal settlement in the East of England, with a distinct and well preserved town centre.
The development site, located on the edge of the existing town, was identified as a strategic opportunity to deliver much needed new housing and employment.
As part of this process, our masterplanning and landscape team produced planning guidelines for the local authority and the developers. This set out an exciting vision and development framework for a completely new community based on a Garden Suburb concept comprising of a range of housing offers, new employment, multifunctional open space and community facilities.
Broadway Malyan also prepared the detailed masterplanning and planning submissions for the developer including technical support. Close engagement with stakeholders has been a fundamental part of the success of the project, which has now secured planning consent.
““The proposal is about developing a new community with easy access to employment in a well-planned and contemporary environment that preserves natural features and addresses the needs and aspirations of the residents – creating a place for everyone!” ”Stephanie Cowley, Associate Landscape Architect, Broadway Malyan
