New Road, Mistley
Scale: 7.2 acres, up to 67 homes
Hollins are inviting comments on a new proposed high-quality, conservation and design-led sustainable residential development for up to 67 homes in the Mistley area. A consultation leaflet will be issued to up to 300 households at the end of November.
The scheme is evolving with expert advice from conservation, landscape and planning consultants familiar with the area. Feedback and suggestions will help to evolve the scheme further with the aim of creating a sensitively designed and bespoke scheme which protects historical features and enhances the area with significant new planting, protection and remediation of existing trees, and well-managed open spaces. Overall, the scheme aims to provide a net biodiversity gain for local wildlife.
The proposals will provide much needed homes for local people, families and the elderly, in a sustainable location and in an authority which does not presently have the required amount of housing land.
