Bloor Homes is proud to be bringing forward an outline planning application for up to 249 high-quality new homes, public open space, and community uses on land north of Scotts Hill, Southminster.
We continue to promote the site as part of the Council’s Local Development Plan Review 2021+, which is currently at Call For Sites and Issues and Options stage.
Bloor Homes will be running a public consultation event on Wednesday 28th September 2022 at St Leonards Church, and will host a live webinar on Thursday 29th September from 7-8pm.
This will provide an opportunity to learn more about the plans for the site, as well as to ask any questions of the project team directly. A feedback form will also be provided following the webinar, but if you have any further comments then please contact us.
Below is a recording of our Community webinar, hosted on 29th September 2022.
Public consultation event
Wednesday, 28th September, 2022
4pm – 8pm
St Leonards Church, 1 Station Rd, Southminster CM0 7EW
The site comprises 15 hectares and is located on the western edge of the village of Southminster, with services and facilities including a rail station, primary school, local shops, small business premises, public houses, sports facilities, and a memorial hall.
Recently, Maldon District Council assessed the site favourably in their Local Development Plan review, stating that:
“On balance it is considered that development of the site would be suitable. The site is located within walking distance of services and facilities in Southminster, including the train station, school and doctors. Walking will be safe from the site, linking with the wider pavement network. The site is large enough to ensure the provision of landscaping, open space, and the maintenance and improvement to public transport.”
The site is located on the western edge of Southminster
Bloor Homes is progressing an outline planning application for the site. This includes details regarding the access and quantum of development, with all matters concerning design, scale, layout, landscaping, and ecological enhancements, reserved for later applications.
