Case Study

Chelmer Waterside, Chelmsford, for Taylor WImpey

BNP Paribas Real Estate assisted Taylor Wimpey in securing planning permission for a brownfield site to be regenerated as Chelmer Waterside, Chelmsford

The challenge

We were instructed to advise on the regeneration of an underused brownfield site in Chelmsford city centre into a vibrant residential and commercial area. Landscaping and infrastructure improvements were also required as part of the development.


The solution

With our guidance, planning permission for the scheme was granted in March 2017 by unanimous decision. In a desirable waterfront location, the site will make a valuable contribution to affordable housing stock and the city overall.
