Colchester Amphora Homes Ltd Receives Planning Approval for Creffield Road Development

An important milestone has been reached for Colchester Borough Council’s private housing development company, Colchester Amphora Homes Ltd, with a successful planning submission approved by the Planning Committee on 5 September 2019.

Key considerations for the new development on Creffield Road, Lexden, designed by Ipswich architects Barefoot & Gilles, will focus on the refurbishment of a locally listed Victorian building into apartments and the construction of two new town houses.

This will provide a high-quality mix of homes with a sustainable, environmentally-friendly design and specification for Colcestrians, in a highly desirable location close to the centre of town, giving excellent access to local amenities.

These new developments will provide top-quality homes in our town, desirable places where people will enjoy living. High-quality building design is an intrinsic part of that, and I look forward to following the delivery of these properties for the people of Colchester in such an excellent location.

The new homes will be launched for pre-sale within the next six months.
