600 homes plan for old Runwell Hospital site
8:43am Thursday 31st May 2012 in Echo News
A PUBLIC exhibition is taking place for residents to look at plans for 600 new homes on the former Runwell Hospital site.
This is the second round of consultation and residents are invited to view the plans on Thursday, June 14 at the Runwell Sports and Social Club, from noon until 6pm, and there will be workshops on from 6.30pm to 8pm.
The Homes and Communities Agency which owns the site, has prepared a set of draft development proposals based on feedback from the first stage of consultation held in March and April this year.
As well as the new homes, new community facilities and a new by-pass are proposed as part of the plans. Feedback from this round of consultation will be taken on board and fed into the outline planning application which will be submitted to Chelmsford Borough Council in the autumn.
