Staffordshire housing project plans approved

A new housing scheme to be based in Tamworth, Staffordshire had reached the planning application stage for phase three, when the council committee asked for amendments. The residential developers altered their submission, and it has met with a green light from council members, who voted unanimously in favour of the changes.

Architects in Macclesfield, Tamworth and other towns across the north of England often assist property development firms to alter their plans to meet the requirements of local councillors. As well as updating designs, enabling them to pass through the process, architects can also offer expert guidance that can fast track plans and ensure a successful result.

The original plans in place for phase three of the massive development involved erecting two apartment blocks on land known as Dunstall Farm. Following council objections, these buildings have now been replaced with houses. The apartment blocks would have created 223 new homes for the area, while the new plans will only provide 232. However, the necessary reduction has been actioned with consideration to the number of affordable homes delivered by the project.

Planning Manager at Barratt Homes, Mark Elliot, explained the impact on the development to Tamworth Informed:

“This reduces the overall number of units but not the number of affordable dwellings previously agreed. While the amendments proposed are fairly minor it is considered they will enhance the quality of the previously approved scheme.”

The land located off Dunstall Lane will see more than just homes built. A commercial hub will be created, alongside a dedicated primary school to serve the needs of residents.
