Beaulieu will provide a vibrant new district for Chelmsford offering inspirational architecture and landscape. It will have its own unique identity inspired by its rich heritage, offering premium housing and exemplary community facilities. Set around the majestic New Hall School, formerly King Henry VIII’s Tudor palace, and its estate parkland, the development is conceived as a series of individually designed neighbourhoods that connect to the wider landscape and countryside.
Set to become an outstanding place for people to live, work and play, Beaulieu has been designed and driven by the needs and aspirations of the community. Situated on the north-eastern edge of Chelmsford, Beaulieu will provide a complete range of well-designed new homes from one bedroom apartments to five bedroom family houses. The residential areas will be supported by first class amenities that will allow the new neighbourhoods to grow and flourish. A wide range of facilities will be provided including two new primary schools and a secondary school; community, health, sport and retail amenities together with an extensive network of parkland and green open spaces.
Designed to serve as the 'heart' of Beaulieu, a new neighbourhood centre will be developed as part of the first phase offering a vibrant community hub from the outset. Investment in transport connections will also be key to the success of the scheme, which includes a site for a new railway station on the East Anglian main line as well as a new relief road connecting Beaulieu to the A12.
