Queenborough Rushenden Masterplan

Due to changing economic conditions, proposals for the regeneration at Queenborough and Rushenden needed to be refreshed. A revised land use plan has therefore been produced. The addendum also reflects progress in the current and planned delivery of the Queenborough and Rushenden regeneration proposals, alongside changes in land ownership. Much of the adopted Masterplan will remain in place for Development Management purposes.

The main changes proposed are:

  • the reduction of dwelling numbers from 2,000 to 1,180;
  • the removal of the proposed marina;
  • the inclusion of the former ISTIL Mill and Thomsett Way sites for potential residential development; and
  • a new location for the proposed primary school.

The  Masterplan Addendum was consulted on in November and December 2014 and the Local Development Framework Panel agreed the adoption of the Addendum to the original Masterplan SPD for Development Management purposes on 2nd March 2015.
