Kelvedon Parish Council statement on Kings Dene development

As you may be aware, a development named Kings Dene, on land to the north of Kelvedon, is currently being promoted on behalf of Parker Strategic Land.

At present this site has not come forward as part of either a planning application or as a site allocated for development by Braintree District Council (BDC).

However BDC is having to assess the site as an alternative option to the Garden Communities Plan (which includes the proposals at Great Tey), as part of their ongoing work on the Local Plan. This does not mean that this land north of Kelvedon will be automatically allocated as land for development, but that it has been included as part of the process to determine BDC’s development strategy.

Parker Strategic Land has invited key stakeholders (such as BDC and neighbouring Parish Councils) to a meeting this week to present the proposals for this site. This is part of the normal process of engagement with local authorities which would be expected with a site such as this. As and when the proposals enter the public realm as either a planning application or as part of the BDC Local Plan as an allocated site, Kelvedon Parish Council will be engaging with residents and BDC accordingly.
