Most commentators on the relative health of the housing market will typically not get very far before the word ‘crisis’ appears. We need more homes, in multiple locations, of multiple tenures. So why is it that the choice of housing stock is still relatively thin on the ground? And how many housing sites are typically planned around people rather than cars, or adopting a design-led approach that focuses on how people live their lives in 2020, not 1920?
EASL has a plan for North Fambridge. Having secured a position on land at Rectory Road, EASL has a vision of delivering a bespoke housing scheme, that maximises the site’s proximity to Fambridge railway station, and gives people the opportunity to live in a property that maximises the rural beauty of the village. Where town planning – not town cramming – drives the design, and gives people the choice to live in something different to a suburban housing estate. It won’t be for everyone, but then that’s essentially the point; we all have different aspirations from housing. It’s time we made a virtue of that.
