Public roadshow for 170 house Ridgeons development in Saffron Walden

Ridgeons Housing Development in Saffron WaldenRidgeons are holding their first roadshows for the proposed redevelopment of their Ashdon Road site in Saffron Walden. They filed a screening application in April to convert 1/2 of their current employment land to 170 homes, and redevelop the remaining employment land for commercial use including industrial/business, retail, a restaurant and a hotel.

The development is on the inaccessible east of town, so will cause increased traffic through the High Street, Thaxted Road and Castle Street junctions that already breach legal pollution limits. 170 new houses will generate 28 new 11-16 year old secondary school students and 28 new primary school places. Most Saffron Walden schools are already at capacity or oversubscribed. Half the employment land on the site will be lost for jobs. We urge residents to attend the roadshows.

The exhibitions are:

  • Thursday 13th June, 5pm – 8pm at Ridgeons, Ashdon Road Commercial Centre, CB10 2NQ
  • Saturday 15th June, 10am–3pm at St Mary’s Parish Rooms, Church Path, Saffron Walden, CB10 1JP
