  • 4 new primary schools
  • a new secondary school

  • designated green spaces

Chelmsford Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Growth, Neil Gulliver said: “This plan will steer the creation of new places to live and work in Chelmsford and therefore represents an important and exciting planning milestone.
