Town Centre Masterplans
Rochford Town Centre
Rochford District Council has recently commissioned Urban Initiatives, a leading urban planning and design consultancy, to produce town centre masterplans for Rochford and Hockley.
The purpose of the masterplans is to inform the Council's Local Development Framework and help provide guidance to both the Council and potential developers in terms of proposals, funding bids and enhancement schemes.
This study will help to identify how much capacity for development exists within the town centres of Rochford and Hockley and what level of new development is appropriate, taking into account the local character and historical context of the town centres, to achieve the Council's vision of making the district the place of choice in the county to live, work and visit.
