Stowupland

Overview

Linden Homes is consulting the community on detailed planning applications for the permitted development sites at Thorney Green Road, Stowupland.

The sites were granted outline planning permission in May 2018. Linden Homes is intending to submitt the detailed planning applications, known as Reserved Matters applications, in November 2019. These will set out:

  • The layout of the scheme, which will broadly follow the outline plans
  • The design of the new homes
  • Details of the landscaping plans
  • Details of footpaths and public open spaces.

The design of the homes will be in keeping with the local area, with traditional pitched-roof design with a mixture of brick and render elevations.

The proposed development would include 143 homes with a broad mix of house types, including 35% affordable homes, and there will be large public open spaces and amenity spaces. The entrance to the site will be from a new junction on the B1115.

There will be a network of pedestrian routes including a new informal footpath around the northern boundary of the site and retention of the Public Right of Way through the middle of the site.

A cycleway will be provided through the site road network. The area to the south of the B1115, which is not controlled by Linden Homes, is due to become a local nature reserve.

History

Planning Background.

Outline planning applications were submitted for the South Field site in January 2016 and the North Field site in January 2017. These two applications were granted outline planning permission in May 2018, following appeals to the Planning Inspectorate.

The South Field was given permission for up to 58 dwellings with vehicular access off the B1115. The North Field was given permission for up to 85 dwellings with associated parking,

landscaping, open space and surface water attenuation. These total up to 143 dwellings, for which Linden Homes is now applying for detailed permission to enable development to commence.

The Site

The proposed development would include:

  • 143 homes with a broad mix of house types.
  • 35% affordable homes, in line with the Council’s policy.
  • Large public open spaces and amenity spaces.
  • Entrance to the site from a new junction on the B1115 (approved under the outline planning permission).
  • A network of pedestrian routes including a new informal footpath around the northern boundary of the site and retention of the Public Right of Way through the middle of the site.
  • A cycleway provided through the site road network.
  • Enhanced biodiversity and habitats, including significant landscaped areas, new trees and hedgerows and open spaces.
  • Widening of the footpath on western side of Thorney Green Road.
  • Surface water drainage managed on site and discharged into the local ditch network at the same rate as currently discharged from the field.
  • Development will accord with the Council’s housing mix policy and car parking standards.
  • Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payment of circa £1.3m towards local facilities.

Sustainability is an important element of the proposals for Linden Homes. The plans include:

  • Electric Vehicle Charging Points to be provided.
  • Insulation and energy efficiency will be above the Building Regulations requirement.

The area to the south of the B1115, which is not controlled by Linden Homes, is due to become a local nature reserve.
