Vectos has been appointed as the transport advisor to Land Securities who is promoting land between Great Dunmow and Stansted airport for a new settlement to serve Uttlesford’s housing needs. Following extensive work and discussions with stakeholders the site has now been included in the draft Uttlesford Local Plan for 10,000 units with associated community facilities and significant employment.
We considered in detail the location of the site and in particular its proximity to the largest employer in the region, Stansted Airport. This, along with the facilities available in Great Dunmow, influenced the transport strategy. The strategy includes a dedicated sustainable link to Stansted airport. We also undertook an assessment of the highway network and access requirements that have been agreed in principle by Essex County Council.
