Proposed Development

Homes by Carlton and Believe Housing are proposing a residential development on land adjacent to Snook Acres, Witton Gilbert. The proposal includes one vehicle access point from Front Street with a further pedestrian link within the site to connect the development to the existing community. It is intended to submit a full application seeking planning permission to provide 32 new homes on the site.

The proposed development will comprise a mix of high quality, well designed semi-detached and detached homes, comprising 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties which include some dormer bungalows to complement the existing housing mix in the surrounding residential area. 

The proposal will also secure 25% affordable housing at the site which will be a mixture of affordable rent and affordable home ownership, to provide a diverse housing mix across the scheme. Each property will benefit from off street car parking spaces, with many homes including garages and all properties will have private enclosed rear gardens to create a safe and inclusive place to live. The proposed development also includes open front gardens which will be lawned with some areas of public openspace and landscaping areas to enhance the character and appearance of the development.

The proposed development has been arranged around a cul-de-sac layout to allow for safe access and manoeuvrability for vehicles and to encourage a sense of place and community for residents.
