Beechwood West in Basildon granted planning permission

Planning Permission Granted on Custom-Build homes that provide personalised living at a price that won’t break the bank.

At Beechwood West, Swan Housing Association’s landmark regeneration of the Craylands Estate, Pollard Thomas Edwards has created a uniquely customisable new neighbourhood to cross-subsidise the wider regeneration of this 1960’s housing estate in Basildon.

Alongside development partners Basildon Borough Council and the Homes and Communities Agency, Swan and PTE have responded to the government’s new custom-build and self-build initiatives to design 251 new homes that residents can personalise to their own requirements and tastes, creating a unique home that they have helped to design. The new homes will be pre-constructed in a factory close to the site, providing a high quality finish, extensive environmental benefits and saving on construction time.

Carl Vann, Partner at Pollard Thomas Edwards commented

“This is a fantastic opportunity, not only to regenerate a tired estate, but also to provide something really unique: genuinely customisable new homes at an affordable price.”
