Development off Chitts Hill, Colchester
As you may be aware, planning permission was granted by Colchester Borough Council in December 2019 for a development off Chitts Hill, Colchester.
The development will consist of 100 new homes and will include a range of two to four-bedroom houses, bungalows and apartments. 30 of the homes will be Affordable Homes, including rented and shared ownership which will be delivered in partnership with a housing association. The final masterplan for the site is shown below:
This development is being built by Hopkins Homes, one of the largest independent house builders in East Anglia. We pride ourselves on the quality of the homes we create and the strength of our links with the local community.
Preparation work will commence this month and work on construction of the development will start in February, with the first homes being completed in February 2021.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I get in touch with the site team?
We have created a Community Liaison Service so you can ask questions or raise any concerns relating to our work or our contractors. This service is handled by Athene Communications and we are required to inform you that your data (name and contact details if provided) will be stored for the sole purpose of responding to your query. Athene will respond directly to you, and where appropriate, investigate matters on site.
You can make contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling our Freephone number 0800 0352874. This is an answer phone service, which is checked regularly on weekdays.
Q: Will I be affected by construction on site?
There is no doubting the need for new homes – both nationally and locally – but we do also appreciate that building houses can cause some disruption to local people through construction noise and traffic. We are committed to keeping such disruption to a minimum.
Q: What times will work take place on site?
The working hours shall be between:
- 8.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday
- 8.00am – 1.00pm Saturday
No work shall be carried out on Sundays or Public Holidays
Please be aware that our construction teams often arrive shortly before these times but are aware of the site working hours.
Q: What impact will the construction have on local traffic?
We understand the construction period will result in more vehicles using the road, however we will endeavour to keep the disruption to a minimum. We will conduct road inspections as required and carry out road cleaning as and when necessary.
If you see anything that you feel needs to be addressed, please contact us by emailing email@example.com or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 so that we can investigate this for you.
Q: Noise complaints (generators, etc.)
We do our best to keep disruption to a minimum, though our construction will unavoidably cause some noise. If at any point you feel that the noise is on-going outside of our standard working hours times please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Freephone number: 0800 0352 874 and we will look into this.
