A planning application has been made for 603 new homes ranging from 1 bedroom apartments to 5 bedroom villas. Much of the existing woodland will be improved and restored woodland walkways will remain for public use as well as new outdoor public play areas and a kick about pitch.
Approximately 93 acres has been identified as surplus to NHS requirements and therefore suitable for development.
55 acres will be used for new homes and 43% – will be retained as woodland and greenspace for residents and the wider community to enjoy.
A wide range of house types will be available for sale including apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached that will cater for most household requirements.
The plans provide for a mix of home types suiting a variety of budgets. Sales prices will not be available until the launch of each phase of the development.
The housebuilders have assessed impacts on infrastructure such as roads, flooding and schools as well as woodland and wildlife. Reports on all of these matters have been submitted as part of the planning application and the Council will decide the final level of contribution and/or mitigation required.
