Great news! The first visuals for Qualis Commercial’s exciting plans for Epping Town Centre have been revealed ahead of the second public consultation starting next week.
5 days of (COVID-safe) virtual online events start on Monday giving people the chance to see how Qualis Commercial has listened to their comments and fed them into the revised proposals for the 5 sites in Epping Town Centre.
Book your place on the virtual online events
Residents can book a place on one of the virtual online events taking place by visiting the Working Together for Epping website. The virtual online events will take place on:
- Monday 2 November – 11am to 1pm
- Tuesday 3 November – 2.30pm to 4.30pm
- Thursday 5 November – 6.30pm to 8.30pm
- Friday 6 November – 4pm to 6pm
- Saturday 7 November – 10am to 12pm
A pre-recorded presentation will also be available for residents who can’t log on live to view at any time from next Monday on the Commonplace Working Together for Epping consultation platform where there will also be the facility to leave comments. Feedback channels for residents to comment will remain open until Friday 13 November.
What’s on the revised proposals
The revised proposals show an enhanced leisure centre with gym, swimming pool, sports hall and 2 squash courts on the Bakers Lane site. The Cottis Lane site providing multi-level car parking, including electric car charging points and other uses such as retail, offices, cinema and community space to complement the established High Street.
Phasing of the developments would ensure the new Epping Leisure Centre opened before the old sports centre closed.
Other proposals include over 250 much needed new quality homes built around green spaces on the St John’s Road site, the Conder Building and car park at the Civic Offices, and old sports centre site in Hemnall Street.
There would be a mixture of houses and apartments offering a range of private for sale homes, high quality rented homes and affordable housing in line with Epping Forest District Council’s affordability criteria.
