Brentwood Borough Council has approved plans for two schemes at Maple Close and Seven Arches Road proposed by Brentwood Development Partnership as part of their mission to transform the borough.

The partnership is an innovation between Muse Developments and Brentwood Borough Council and is looking to bring up to £1 billion worth of development over the next 30-year period.

The Seven Arches scheme is on the site of a registry office which will be demolished, before being replaced by a three-storey apartment building containing high quality one and two-bedroom apartments. The planned development takes the surrounding areas into careful consideration and focuses on integrating with surrounding blocks and other architecture in the vicinity, such as Brentwood High School.

The Maple Close scheme will redevelop a garage site into nine affordable homes, with Maple Hall also being replaced by a new community centre with play space and parking, as well as other facilities for residents.

Andy Howell, partnership manager at Brentwood Development Partnership said “It’s great that the partnership plans have been approved to bring forward our two first schemes that’ll drive growth and opportunities to benefit the Brentwood community.

“The team is working tirelessly to create schemes that repurpose underused areas, blending Brentwood’s heritage and its future, to create innovative spaces where people can live work and relax. We’re looking forward to the next stage of our journey to build a bright future together in Brentwood.”
