Walkable Neighbourhoods in Chelmsford
Last weekend there was a Sunday Times article about an innovative idea to reduce car use. The article examines proposals for driverless cars in Chelmsford Garden Village, Essex. It is one of a number of measures that could help to reduce the impact and dominance of cars on the built environment in the future.
The article was illustrated with Beaulieu Chase. This scheme has compatible aspirations, but uses more familiar measures. Here we created a ‘walkable neighbourhood’ with attractive pedestrian and cycle routes, through high quality open spaces. And a successful neighbourhood centre with a wide range of facilities delivered from the outset.
