The proposals include new areas of public open space, allotments and landscaping.

In a planning statement the developers state: ”Up to 400 homes are proposed and will incorporate a mix of house types from two to four bed properties including bungalows.

“The scheme provides for high quality residential development with a mix of types styles and sizes of houses.

“The amount and tenure of onsite affordable housing provision will be discussed with the District Council however it is proposed that affordable housing will be provided consistent with the viability of the development.”
