Environmental verdict needed on housing development

An environmental impact assessment will be required on a proposed development of 2,500 homes on the edge of Gloucester.

The planned development at Court Farm, Stroud Road, Whaddon, will also include shops, a school, public open and recreation space with an area of land set aside for a possible future railway halt.

Black Box Planning lodged the latest application for a screening request with Stroud District Council on behalf of developers Taylor Wimpey.

The request is part of the process for determining whether an environment impact assessment is required with the council's planning officers deciding an assessment is required.

The proposed development would link Tuffley with the village of Whaddon along the A4173 Stroud Road with three neighbourhoods around a new park at Daniel's Brook.
