Very much a new village with lots to offer, Great Notley was the first development in the country to incorporate traffic calming measures throughout its road network and to introduce 20mph speed limits. 20mph zones have been proven to halve the number of casualties within residential areas and many different measures are utilised to achieve this including, speed control islands, chicanes and tables, with the additional benefits that air and noise pollution are also reduced. Great Notley is centred around the 6-acre village green which is the venue for a variety of different activities including cricket on the square. Thirty six semi-mature English oak trees encircle the green in a traditional manner, with the family homes beyond them benefitting from superb views of this time honoured village scene. The 100 acre country park has been created by Countryside Properties for the enjoyment of all in the Village, it can be reached by an underpass from the middle of the village, or by crossing at the Tesco roundabout. It contains 2 lakes, stunning views from the top of Notley Bowl, and lovely countryside walks and one of the largest adventure play areas in the region, which aims to put the danger back into play!
