The Proposals

The site was granted outline planning permission in May 2017 for residential use, along with an extension to the playing fields car park.

This means that the general principle of residential development on this site, along with the access arrangements has been approved.

Detailed matters such as layout, landscaping, scale and appearance are now being sought by Bellway Homes Ltd (Yorkshire).

We are proposing:

  • 97 new two-storey homes
  • A range of 1 to 5 bedroom properties
  • Market housing for sale and affordable homes
  • Areas of public open space and landscaping

Access will be taken from two points on West Leys Road. Access to the site has already been approved by the Council under the approved outline application.

Further detail regarding the layout and design of the site was provided at a consultation event which took place on the 5th September 2018 at Swanland Village Hall.

Following this event, the website was updated with further information for those not able to attend the event.

Why are we consulting?

We are seeking your views on the detailed matters of the application. You can leave your comments on the ‘Make Your Views Known’ page.

What happens next?

All views received as part of this consultation will be carefully considered and used to make any necessary changes to the proposals before a planning application is submitted to the Council.

Once the planning application is submitted, the Council will notify local residents and statutory consultees and you will have a further chance to submit comments on the application before it is determined.
