Delivery of the new 'urban village' at Cheshunt Lakeside is progressing well

Construction at Cheshunt Lakeside began in 2020 and the first homes will be complete in 2022. Public safety and comfort has been and will continue to be our priority throughout. We have put in place a range of practical measures to ensure the safe delivery of the works and to minimise disruption.

195 apartments in Phase1A

Phase 1A at
Cheshunt
Lakeside

Construction of the first 195 homes started in 2020.

Construction of these homes, forming Phase1A of the scheme as shown in the image opposite, started in November 2020

Phase 1A is the first phase of construction at Cheshunt Lakeside and is a partnership scheme with B3 Living, who are a local, Broxbourne-based housing association. In total, 195 much needed affordable homes will be delivered within this phase across two buildings. More than 80 of these homes will be available for local people to buy through the shared ownership scheme, with the remainder to be offered as affordable rent.

The first homes, within the rear building, are on track for completion and handover in the summer of 2022, with the building envelope - external walls and roofing – now complete and scaffolding beginning to be removed. The building closest to Delamare Road is on schedule for completion in early 2023.

If you would like to register your interest in one of the affordable homes within this first phase, you can do so online at www.b3athome-cheshunt.co.uk.

Construction

Phase
1B and Parcel 14

Construction of Phase 1B and Parcel 14 started in 2021.

Construction of the next two phases of development, Parcel 14 and Phase 1 B, began in 2021 following Council approval of our detailed plans.

Parcel 14 will deliver 22 apartments which will be offered for private sale and launched in the summer of 2022. Parcel 14 will also deliver 350m2 of commercial space. Parcel 14 is very exciting as it provides a gateway to the development and includes the first element of mixed-use commercial space.

Phase 1B is located opposite Phase 1A and will deliver 205 homes within one building. The build is currently at piling stage, with the structural frame works due to start in early spring 2022 and completion by the end of 2023.

questions

New Tesco House, Old Tesco House and Tesco Resource Centre have been demolished as part of Phase 1A works. Future works will require additional demolition and we will provide updates on this as the project progresses.
See above maps. The primary route to and from the site will be the Northern Route (A10 – Church Lane – High Street – Cadmore Lane – Delamare Road). Smaller vehicles will use the Southern Route (A10 – B198 College Road – Turners Hill – Windmill Lane – Delamare Road).
We understand that traffic is of concern to the community and we have put a number of measures in place to minimise disruption as far as possible. Vehicles will only be able to access the site between 9:30am and 3:30pm. This is to avoid peak traffic. There will be no Sunday or bank holiday working. Operation hours on site are 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 1pm on Saturdays.
We aim to recycle and reuse 75% of materials demolished. Tesco Resource Centre was the first building to be demolished and the land on which the building currently stands is being used to store the materials until they can be reused.
