August 2015 - Outline Planning Permission gained on behalf of Devine Homes for up to 71 dwellings in Badshott Lea. Although the site is outside of the Settlement Boundary and beyond the Green belt, the Council could not identify a deliverable supply of housing sites to meet the demand within the next five years and agreed that the benefits of providing housing in this location outweighed this drawbacks. Due to the location of the land, there are no Policies regarding Affordable Homes. However, the applicant has agreed that 40% (28 No.) dwellings will be Affordable providing a considerable benefit to the proposals.
Other benefits will include the potential creation of Public Open Space and Play areas, together with the potential to improve links to the existing recreation ground. Off site Contributions will also be made vis a Section 106 Agreement.
CMYK provided both Architectural and Town planning Services for this project and hope to be involved in the submission of a Reserved Matters Application in the near future.
