There was a proposal in the 2018 Uttlesford Draft District plan for a new garden village in the Great Chesterford area which would have adjoined the property. This proposal is currently in abeyance as the District Plan was rejected by Government Inspectors in 2019. There is considered to be possible development potential for the entire property if the garden village proposal is resurrected.

Currently, the original Farmhouse on the site is very derelict, and purchasers should be extremely cautious visiting the site.
