Plans for first phase of 1,500 home development in Brockworth have been submitted
By James Young | 7th June 2019
Detailed plans for the first phase of a 1,500-home housing development in Brockworth have been submitted for approval.
The plans would see the first 135 homes built on land at Perrybrook just to the south of the A417 and west of the A46.
It will be the first of seven phases of the controversial development that was only granted after an appeal to the secretary of state in the Department for Communities and Local Government in 2016.
That saw the outline planning permission granted and now developer Bellway Homes has submitted a reserved matters application for phase one that also includes landscaping and engineering works.
The engineering works will include a new access road off the eastbound A417 that will also serve as the link for the later phases of the work.
A section 106 agreement has already been agreed between the developers and Tewkesbury Borough Council, detailing the community provision needed for the scheme to go ahead.
That includes the provision of affordable housing. Of the first 135 homes, 36 will be designated as affordable with 18 two bed, 17 three bed and one four bed included.
When completed the scheme will fan out to the west of phase one and will see homes built between the A46 and the M5 junctions of the A417.
Community provision will see a new sports centre, health facilities, 22,000 square metres of employment land and formal and informal public space.
The reserved matters application was lodged with the council at the end of May and was formally validated this week.
It will now be subject to public consultation until June 26 with the expected determination deadline set for September 30.
