Great Notley is a suburban development, built mostly by Countryside Properties, to the south-west of Braintree, Essex in England. It has an approximate population of 5,500 and became an independent civil parish on 1 April 2000 as a result of The Great Notley Parish Council Order 2000.ArcheologyExcavations in Great Notley revealed the remains of Iron Age and Roman settlements with a series of enclosures overlaid with a Roman development on the site of the Skyline Business Park, where it is thought that there was a series of occupations on the site from the late Iron Age onwards, which included brewing, farming and the production of textiles.Design conceptGreat Notley was designed as a self-sustainable garden village composed of three distinct hamlets linked via a spine road: Notley Green hamlet, to the south Oaklands Manor hamlet, centred on a new manor house Panners Farm hamlet, to the north It is cited as an example of Countryside Properties's design philosophy of 'instant maturity' and 'instant community'.Also within the overall 188ha site is a business park, 'Skyline120', and a 40ha country park.AmenitiesDue to the size of Great Notley, there is little in the way of indoor entertainment facilities. Outdoor entertainment includes various playgrounds and the aforementioned country park (known as the 'Discovery Centre'), which has recently undergone construction work to include an assault course, café and water features.
