The storage and packing of fruit from the region has come to an end with the demolition of the Ace Fruit Packing works in Rignals Lane. A large section of the industrial site has been taken over by Taywood Homes for the construction of their Meadow View housing development. The developer is a member of the Taylor Woodrow Group of Companies and in the words of their brochure 'Meadow View offers an exclusive selection of 4 and 5 bedroom detached family homes overlooking meadows at Galleywood on the southern edge of Chelmsford.' Seven types of house are planned with prices starting at £139,995.
