Countryside - Beaulieu Heath, CM1
Beaulieu is set to provide a vibrant new district on the north-eastern edge of Chelmsford. When complete the development will provide 3,600 new homes along with an extensive range of community facilities including two proposed primary schools plus a secondary school.
The tone and ambience for the scheme has already been set by an earlier Countryside development Beaulieu Park which has become a popular and highly desirable place to live. In each section of the new Beaulieu development a range of housing and architectural styles will be on offer over a number of developments, to suit different buyers and lifestyles.
Beaulieu benefits from a landscape led approach and will result in a series of distinctly designed neighbourhoods, cleverly linked by extensive open spaces and landscaping, helping to connect the development with the surrounding countryside.
In the immediate vicinity a new neighbourhood centre with shops, restaurant, day nursery, community and health care facilities is to be delivered to ensure a vibrant community hub from the outset. In the longer term the development is also set to benefit from 176 acres of green open space, new schools, relief road connecting through to the A12, train station plus a business park.
