Full description

Not just any old bit of land! No, this is something quite special!

Application number 14/00513/OUT was granted by Shropshire Council on 13 August 2014 for 6 dwellings, subject to conditions such as appearance, landscaping, layout and scale, otherwise knowns as ?the reserved matters'. Shropshire Council state that ?application for reserved matters shall be made to the local planning authority before the expiration of 3 years from the date of this permission'. They also state ?the development hereby permitted shall begin before the expiration of 2 years from the date of approval of the last of the reserved matters to be approved'.

The land lies to the rear of The Croft and other dwellings on the southern side of Towers Drive, Prees Heath. To the south and west there is agricultural/horticultural land that is used as part of the smallholding and is bounded in the main by hedgerows with some fencing along some parts.
On the site there are already a number of buildings and structure which would be removed as part of the development. The access to the land is to the east of The Croft.
By applying for 6 dwellings only, the development falls short of the provision for having to build affordable homes (although a financial contribution in the form of a Section 106 Agreement would have to be made) and this will allow for extremely large individual plot sizes.



It is well placed for the nearby A41 trunk road for swift vehicular access into Whitchurch and larger conurbations including Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Chester and Wrexham.

The permission is for the construction of 6 dwellings, subject to conditions.
