Inland Homes has carried out extensive consultation and worked closely with the local community and a wide range of stakeholders to develop the plans for Cheshunt Lakeside

Resolution to grant planning permission for the scheme was announced in June 2019, representing the largest consent ever achieved by Inland Homes. Planning was finalised in August 2019 with the signing of the Section 106 agreement with Broxbourne Borough Council, securing £14.1m of public investment.

Cheshunt Lakeside will be delivered in phases over a number of years. Before construction can begin, a detailed planning application for each stage of work must be approved by the Council.  We submitted the reserved matters application for the delivery of the first phase (phase 1A), comprising 195 new homes, in 2019. This was approved in 2020. In 2021 we received approval for Phases 1B and Parcel 14. Construction of these phases is now underway.

The next phase of the regeneration will be Phase 1C/Parcel 13 and Phase 1D which will deliver the heart of the development, including the local centre, commercial uses, public realm, loop road and bus drop off area, as well as more new homes. Initial plans are being discussed with Broxbourne Borough Council and we hope to submit the detailed application in 2022.

Over 200 people attended the exhibition, which was hosted by the project team and representatives from Lowery Demolition, and over 100 people signed up to receive updates about the project.

October 2017 Consultation

A consultation was held on 12-13 October in the Laura Trott Leisure Centre and displayed the updated proposals. As per the feedback received, the team provided further information regarding the traffic impact assessments and an updated masterplan for the scheme.

The exhibition had 507 attendees with over 80 attendees leaving feedback. The feedback showed an improved perception of the scheme, with further information requested by attendees regarding the scale of the development, parking and traffic.

July 2017 Consultation

The first consultation (held in the Laura Trott Leisure Centre on 13 and 14 July) was a chance to present the proposals to the public for the first time. 467 people attended over the two days and the development team received over 100 feedback forms. The feedback asked for further information about traffic, parking and other infrastructure such as queries about doctors, schools and the local transport network.

This feedback was taken into account when reviewing the design of the scheme and the updated proposals shown in the October consultation.
