Garage Site Re-development - Whittington Road
New Development Proposals
Brentwood Borough Council housing department has recently embarked on a new project to build much needed affordable housing in the Borough. These are the first houses that the Council have built in over 25 years, and this is a great milestone for the area and its residents.
Two former garage sites in Hutton South, will soon offer a selection of three bedroom family homes at Magdalen Gardens and senior living bungalows at Fawters Close.
Proposals have now been drawn up for three garage sites in Hutton North, in the Whittington Road area, for possible re-development for housing. The project will not only offer homes but also potential for additional parking for the surrounding neighbourhood.
These sites offer the chance to help alleviate some of the demand for new housing and the pressure on parking, while also improving the environment for existing and future residents.
Double parking and parking up on dedicated common green areas are just some of the factors that are causing concern for residents. In order to take such problems into account, and hopefully resolve them, the proposed plans – on two out of the three garage sites - are being drafted to include 20-30 extra parking spaces. These will be made available to existing local residents and the new residents who move into the newly developed properties.
There is the additional opportunity to create extra parking by increasing the number of parking bays currently available on the amenity green spaces around Coram Green and Hawksmoor Green. View proposed additional parking layout
We fully welcome ideas from local residents who have proposals for other potential locations or views on how more parking can be created.
The proposals for the suggested sites are:
Site 1 (Barnston Way)
The proposal is for three, two storey, townhouses. These properties are classed as town houses as there is a car port at the front of the property but will be restricted to just two levels in terms of the building height. The ground floor will consist of a hallway, bedroom, accessible wet room and access to a private rear garden. On the first floor there will be an open lounge and dining area, along with a second bedroom with en suite, and balcony to overlook the park land at the front of the property. The site will also include allocated parking of two spaces per property, along with two visitor spaces. View site and concept design plan
Site 2 (Rear of Carpenter Path and Coram Green)
The proposal is for a pair of two storey family homes, each with three bedrooms suitable for families and with the potential to be adapted for those with special mobility requirements if necessary in the future. The ground floor of the property will include an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, one bedroom and rear access to the private garden space. The first floor will have two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Each property will be allocated two parking spaces, along with one space for visitors. This site will also include additional parking spaces for local residents. View site and concept design plan
Site 3 (Whittington Road/Hawksmoor Green)
The proposal is for four single storey bungalows; these properties will be allocated for senior living. The properties are all on one level and have two bedrooms, open plan living and kitchen area, an accessible wet room and private gardens. All properties will have two allocated parking spaces, along with two spaces for visitors. This site will also include additional parking spaces for local residents. View site and concept design plan
