The plans were subject to 17 conditions which were approved today (Wednesday 9th Oct) a full list of conditions here  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As part of the planning process residents were invited to view the application and correspond with the council over any concerns or requests, 5 letters were received they included: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

  • An objection to the development in principle as it would lead to development on a green field site and will generate more traffic and put increased pressure on local services such as the school and doctors surgery.
  • Requests that more pubic (sic) open space is provided with landscaping for amenity, recreational and conservation reasons
  • Existing landscaping on the site should be retained
  • The proposed housing mix is inadequate as it lacks bungalows for the elderly
  • Concerned over traffic impacts and congestion and noise from the increase in vehicles visiting the site and the fact that the site will have only one point of access onto the point where l;arge volumes of traffic converge.
  • Broughton Hall Road at a point where large volumes of traffic converge.
  • Concern raised over the design and height of houses which may look intrusive in the Broughton skyline.

A mixture of 2, 3, 4 & 5 bed dwellings are being proposed for the site, you can view the planned house types here  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

81 of the homes will be classed as affordable and be spread across the site, these will predominantly be made up of 3 bedrooms dwellings. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The site will have a public open space described as “a village green” a childrens play area and a mini football. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As part of the planning permission the applicants are paying £500,000 towards  “educational provision”   The contribution is to provide for increased classroom provision in primary and secondary schools that would potentially cater for occupants of the development. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
