Are you eligible to live in the new Affordable properties in Great Waltham?

 The new CHP housing development of ten affordable rental properties off Cherry Garden Road, is due to complete around March 2020. The GW Parish Council have worked with Chelmsford City Council (CCC) and Chelmer Housing Partnership (CHP) so that residents and people with local connections of GW Parish can be given priority for half of the homes. Eligibility for these five properties will be determined by Chelmsford City Council's standard housing needs criteria and priority will then be given to applicants with a local connection to Great Waltham. Applicants with an established local connection will be prioritised in line with the local lettings plan as agreed with Chelmsford City Council and CHP.  The local connection criteria applies to applicants already residing in GW, but also includes people with certain relatives living in GW or employment for a specified number of hours in GW Parish.  Please see local lettings plan for further information.

 Applicants who are interested must meet Chelmsford City Council's eligibility criteria and be registered with Chelmsford City Council in order to qualify. To register for housing or to check the status of your application, contact Chelmsford City Council on 01245 606400 or apply online at:

 Allocation priority for the Council’s waiting list is determined by an applicant’s band (their priority need) and the length of time they have been registered, so it is important to register ASAP and keep CCC informed of any changes to your circumstances. 

 This is a one off opportunity for our eligible residents that shouldn't be missed, so if you know of any one that you think might be interested please make sure they are made aware of the application process, and that they apply to Chelmsford City Council as soon as possible.  The website is self-explanatory but CCC will provide further assistance if needed. However if you need any more info, contact Cllr Mike Steel, Cllr Steve Huggins, or Jo Palmer. We do have further detail on the “local connection” criteria if required.
