Chelmsford Urban Expansion
The early phase of development in NE Chelmsford involves heavy infrastructure demands constrained to 1000 completed dwellings.
The fund will help deliver an improvement to the Boreham Interchange, allowing the threshold to be raised to 1350, improving cash flow and the simultaneous commencement of two major housing schemes.
Growing Places Fund
The Growing Places Fund (GPF) was established by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (formerly the Department for Communities and Local Government) and the Department for Transport (DfT) in 2011. The aim of this funding is to unlock economic growth, create jobs and ‘kick-start’ house building at stalled development sites.
Through the GPF Round 1 awards, a total of £48.705m GPF was awarded to 13 capital infrastructure projects across the LEP area.
