The Millennium Park development site covers approximately 21 hectares and is centred on grid reference: TA294046. The site lies to the south of the existing built up area of Humberston Avenue and to the east of the existing built up area of New Waltham village. The site lies within the area defined as the southern and western arc within the Council’s regeneration strategies and within the issues and options paper for the ‘New Local Plan’ which was consulted on in November 2012.
It is considered that Humberston Avenue is a suburban area although the site needs to respect the boundary to the open countryside to the south although the prevailing character of this land is open farmland.
