West Tey IS a new community to meet the needs of North Essex

West Tey is a new garden community that will deliver high quality homes and infrastructure for North Essex. It will be a place where people are proud to live, work and relax.

Our community will be located to the west of Marks Tey, close to key transport infrastructure. The A12 and A120 provide fantastic links to Colchester, Braintree, Chelmsford and beyond. Trains from the nearby Marks Tey station reach London Liverpool Street in under an hour.

In addition to existing connections, West Tey will create new and improved infrastructure. This will include an integrated transport system designed to reduce car usage and ease pressure on roads.

Travelling to and from West Tey will be simple, but we want our new community to be a thriving and prosperous place in its own right. We can support and enhance the growth of North Essex’s economy, delivering new flexible workspaces for businesses to succeed. We estimate that our plans could support around 17,500 local jobs, as well as apprenticeships and training opportunities for local young people.

West Tey is being brought forward by leading housing association L&Q, in partnership with local landowners Gateway 120, and planning promoters Cirrus Land Ltd. We’re committed to leaving a positive legacy in North Essex.

We have the experience, ability, financial strength and long-term commitment to deliver this landmark new community. Our plan is the best option to meet local needs.
