Great Wakering, Rochford District Council

Delivery of 120 homes on former Green Belt land

Great Wakering will deliver much needed homes in Rochford District in an attractive location through the successful implementation of a plan-led strategy.

Iceni successfully promoted the site for housing within the Council’s Local Plan, at the same time securing its removal from the Green Belt in its entirety. Outline planning permission was successfully obtained in December 2016 in advance of the site’s original proposed release for housing post-2021.

With a strong emphasis on sustainable design, attractive, high-quality open green space, the 120-home development provided Rochford District Council the opportunity to provide for its local housing needs in a well-planned way.

Iceni Engagement has led an extensive consultation process since the inception of the project providing an open dialogue to ensure any concerns of local residents were addressed.

The recently obtained outline planning permission was a co-ordinated approach with Iceni, with Transport, Planning, Sustainable Development & Engagement collaborating to deliver our client’s requirements ahead of schedule.
