Planning permission has been granted for 12 new custom build homes in Laindon, Essex. The scheme was secured by the government housing agency Homes England, who are committed to supporting smaller builders gain access to land.

The development will offer future owners the opportunity to build architect-designed, customisable homes in a quant and rural setting.

Sitting next to a Grade 1 listed church and within pleasant countryside, the homes will all share a similarly sympathetic material palette, including treated timber and red brickwork; however future owners will have a say in the design of their new home.

The properties will range in size from 1,350 sqft to 1,800 sqft and customers can choose a three, four or five-bed family home. They will also have the freedom to select the number of bathrooms, finishes, fittings, landscaping and additional garage space.

There will be a central wooded area that will act as communal space with private access, unifying the different homes as a cohesive community.
