    Planning Approval at Fobbing

    We have just received planning approval for our design for 168 new homes on the site of the former Vange Water Works in Fobbing near Basildon, Essex. The scheme for Bellway Homes will mark a new chapter for the site, currently used for commercial storage.

    The design will sensitively integrate new homes within a green and wooded setting. An existing pond and water channels are being retained and enhanced to encourage biodiversity – creating a distinctive scheme with a unique sense of place.
