Colchester Tendring Borders Garden Community
Mersea Homes has been delivering quality homes within Colchester and its environs for over 70 years and has a committed and long-term interest in the prosperity of the town and the shape and direction of its future growth ambitions as a place where people choose to live, work, invest and spend their leisure time.
The Essex population is predicted to rise even faster that the UK average, by 20% up to 2039, with Colchester identified as one of the fastest growing areas (2016-based Household Projections). The planned scale of growth committed to by the North Essex Authorities is substantial and the emerging Joint Local Plan identifies some 44,000 new homes are required across North Essex to 2033.
Land at East Colchester is identified as a substantial and strategic location to meet significant proportion of housing and employment needs as part of a new mixed use development of some 7,500 homes; a new community of some 17,000 people.
Mersea Homes, building on its success in shaping and now delivering quality development at scale at Chesterwell, Colchester’s newest community, is uniquely placed to realise the potential at East Colchester to deliver a scheme that captures the town’s growth ambitions; responds positively to the needs and aspirations of the local housing market; and secures investment associated infrastructure to create a vibrant and self-sufficient new community that supports a collective sense of ownership and community pride that is reflective of Mersea Homes’ values as a local developer and housebuilder.
