First car-free development in EFDC gains approval!

First car-free development in EFDC gains approval!

We are thrilled to announce that Princes Road has received planning approval in a landslide vote of 12-2! This landmark approval means that Princes Road will be the first true car-free development in Epping Forest.

The project is for a local developer and will see a single chalet bungalow replaced with six apartments and two commercial blocks, providing the local community with additional housing, and providing the opportunity to boost the local high road in Buckhurst Hill, one of the many reasons it was supported by councillors.

The development has taken design cues from surrounding heritage at the bottom of Queens Road and Princes Road, whilst maintaining its own identity. The honouring of the local architectural aesthetic was key in our approval.

As architects, we aren’t just designing houses, we’re designing the future and the world we want to live in. With this in mind, we are particularly proud to have created such a stellar build that normalises a car-free lifestyle.
