Catons Lane, Saffron Walden

Uttlesford District Council

This project at Catons Lane in Saffron Walden, has been developed for Uttlesford District Council and represents a first significant step in the authorities’ development of new council owned houses.

The scheme redevelops a former under used garage site with a mix of new one and two bedroom houses. House types have been carefully designed and arranged on the site to avoid existing mature trees, and overlooking of neighbouring houses whilst maintaining existing access rights to adjacent rear gardens.

A pedestrian right of way through the site has been retained and improved by the creation of a new shared surface and footpath with the new houses orientated to create natural surveillance and active frontages.

The local planning authority was consulted at an early stage to ensure that any concerns could be addressed prior to a planning application. This lead to a recommendation for approval and unanimous vote in favour of the application at planning committee.
