08 Nov 32 unit property development in Chelmsford underway
Goldlay Square, a 32 unit development in Chelmsford, is part of a wider £42 million project to help tackle Essex’s housing shortage.
The development was the site of ECC’s former library headquarters before it became surplus to requirements in 2015.
It is now an exceptional residential development that offers much needed housing.
Comprising of 23 apartments for private sale and 9 affordable units, the site consists of three buildings which face onto a central garden area incorporating artwork from renowned artist Les Bicknall.
This is part of Essex County Council’s Essex Housing scheme.
Essex Housing was set up to help tackle the housing shortage by redeveloping surplus buildings and land at risk of lying empty and drifting into disrepair.
