Green light given for new housing development on the edge of Cheltenham

Permission has been granted for a housing development on former green belt land next to Cheltenham Town Football Club's training ground in Swindon Village.

Removed from the green belt in the Joint Core Strategy, the 0.76 hectares of land off Brockhampton Lane will be turned into 17 new houses.

The development by Bristol-based Cotswold Homes will see "a high-quality and distinctive development which complements the qualities and characteristics of Swindon Village."

The development will be formed of 10 four-bedroom houses for the open market and a number of others for the shared or affordable market.

There will be two two-bed units for shared ownership and three two-bed houses and a two three-beds designated as affordable housing.

A new road will also be constructed with access to Brockhampton Lane to allow for access to the new builds.

Outline planning permission for the development was granted in December 2018 and now the reserved matters, detailing the final designs and layout has been approved by Cheltenham Borough Council.
