A planning application has been submitted for a 181 housing development in Meir.
The plans, which have been submitted to Stoke-on-Trent City Council are for land west of Caverswall Lane in Meir.
The proposals, submitted by Claremont Planning Consultancy on behalf of Bellway Homes Ltd, is for the: “erection of 181 dwellings with associated landscaping, open space, highways and drainage.”
Within documentation which has been submitted to the council for planning permission, a spokesman for Bellway Homes said: “The application site can be found on the western side of Caverswall Lane, less than 1 km east of Meir local centre, 1km from the roundabout (known as ‘Catchems Corner’) at the junction of the A50 main arterial road and the A520 (which travels north to Leek), and circa 700 m from two large supermarkets located at Meir Park; Tesco and Aldi.
“The site is a former arable field, which has been levelled and an access road delivered to enable access to the primary school. These works were undertaken following the grant of permission for enabling works. The site forms part of a wider site allocation, Land West of Pye Green Road, allocated in the adopted Local Plan under Policy CP6.
“An outline planning application was approved on the identified and land to the north up to Caverswall Lane as a whole in 2018, however that permission has been superseded by a subsequent outline planning permission.”
The spokesman added: “This application seeks the approval of reserved matters relating to layout, landscape and appearance, for residential development on Land South of Caverswall Lane, Meir. The proposals incorporate a total of 181 dwellings, comprising a mix of houses and including one to four bedroom dwellings.
“The proposed site layout illustrates how 181 dwellings will be delivered on the site. The development will be delivered in a manner that appropriately utilises this sustainable site, whilst seeking to ensure positive relationships are achieved with neighbouring development elsewhere within the wider site. The development of phase two will be delivered into two distinct parcels, linked by the primary road and green spaces/SUDs corridor.
“Bellway Homes will deliver the requirements of the outline S106 Agreement in relation to off-site funding toward affordable housing, funding toward educational infrastructure, financing the delivery of open space and play facilities as well as ensuring parking controls are provided.
“These payments are required depending upon occupancy or implementation so Bellway Homes will ensure co-ordination of payments in accordance with the S106 requirements for phase 2.”
Comments on the 181 housing development proposals can be made via the Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s website by September 22.
