Significant consultation was undertaken with local community including Parish Council, Local Authority and other stakeholders.
Planning application WA/2015/0789 (full) for 69 houses including 21 social, a 60 bed care home and 12 acres of suitable alternative natural greenspace (SANG) was originally refused 04/12/2015 but then won on appeal 20/03/2017. An agreement for pre-sale of all social units to Clarion Housing Group was reached.
In light of the original refusal, a twin-track strategy was employed and planning application WA/2016/1261 (full) for 61 houses including 9 affordable, and 60 bed care home and 12 acres of SANG was submitted during the appeal process for the first application. This scheme also received full consent.
