Wycke Place is situated on the fringes of the market town of Maldon and forms part of the Limebrook Park Garden Suburb, in total, will include 1,000 new homes started in September 2020.

Meandering through the site is the original Lime Brook, historical records suggest that the banks of the brook were once home to early Roman settlers with some evidence of this found as part of the comprehensive archaeological studies completed before the development started back in 2019.

The Crest Nicholson development takes in a 45-acre plot and Anderson so far have secured the initial S278 works, sales arena works, Phase 1 roads and sewers and Phase 2 roads and sewers.

The S278 works comprised of the formation of two bellmouths to serve the development, the widening of the existing Maldon Road, drainage improvements and installation or upgrades to existing lighting, signage, bus stops and street furniture.

The infrastructure works involved both adoptable ECC specification and private roads and drainage and the formation of many attenuation basins and feeder swales discharging surface water run-off to existing ditches.

Foul water discharges in two locations on the Eastern boundary, a directional drill method was utilised to mitigate disturbance to the redundant railway line once running between South Woodham Ferrers & Witham which closed in 1939.

Further work included traditional strip foundations to support the substructure brickwork, insulated block and beam floors, all associated uPVC domestic drainage and an array of other external works.

Once complete Phase 1 & 2 Wycke Place will provide over 300 new homes with 90 32 designated as affordable.

Refurbishment and enhancements to an existing pedestrian railway tunnel linking to the wider Limebrook Park development will also take place providing a dedicated footpath link between both both parts of the Limebrook development Anderson Senior Site Manager for this project is Ron “Rocket” Sant who oversees 30 Anderson employees.
