Plans for a new 45-unit development in downtown Brentwood are open for public comment.
The Brentwood Development Partnership, a joint venture between the Brentwood Borough Council and construction firm Morgan Sindall, has opened a consultation for their Westbury Road development project.
More than 300 letters were mailed to residents of the neighborhood to notify them of the consultation, which could not be held face-to-face due to Covid-19.
Residents were first consulted on the project last November and December, with concerns about the scale and shape of the building.
The proposal, which included 53 properties, has now been reduced to 45 houses in the form of apartments and maisonettes.
The planned development, part of which will face Brentwood High Street, will consist of two blocks arranged at ground level with heights of two and three stories.
The Brentwood Development Partnership was formed in October 2019 with the goal of using the council’s surplus land portfolio to build homes and community facilities.
In addition to Westbury Road, the partnership is working on projects in Maple Close and Seven Arches Road.
He proposes to push forward a development program worth Â£ 1 billion over 30 years.
