Consultation for new homes and other facilities on this site took place from May 2019 to late January 2020. The consultation included three rounds of ‘face to face’ events showing the progress made on the design of the new homes and enabled comments and feedback from the local community. This feedback will be incorporated into the final proposals.


Following the consultation, a planning application was made by the Council in February 2020 for the development of a scheme aiming to provide much-needed housing. The development will deliver 20 new homes with secure residential communal areas. The scheme obtained ‘resolution to grant’ planning permission in July 2020.
