Brandon Lewis MP recently visited Mersea Homes’ Chesterwell development, praising the company for being a good example of a local developer building homes and infrastructure for its community.
The Housing & Planning Minister visited the Chesterwell development, in North ColchesterColchester with the local MP Will Quince. They met up with the Mersea Homes’ team and Brian Morgan of ADP who has been the lead town planner on the scheme since inception.
The two members of parliament were given a tour of Chesterwell, whilst at the same time being able to debate current and emerging national planning issues.
Chesterwell features a range of housing options and the community facilities will include two schools, a country park and routes for cycling or walking directly to Colchester town centre or the mainline train station.
“I fully support local builders who are providing good quality housing for local families,” said the minister. He continued: “Here at Chesterwell Mersea Homes have built a good reputation with the community and that is the added benefit when you are dealing with a local company who are going to be developing in the area for the foreseeable future.”
Homes at Chesterwell have already proved popular. Out of the 29 homes released during the first phase all are sold and a new release is now being offered. Homes range between two to four bedrooms, with current prices starting at £238,000 up to £470,000.
Mersea Homes’ managing director Stuart Cock said: “We were grateful to our MP Will Quince and MP Brandon Lewis for finding the time to visit Chesterwell on Saturday and delighted that the Housing Minister was obviously impressed by what he saw here at Chesterwell.”
