Phase two of Innsworth 1,300 home estate to be considered next week

188views

Plans to sign-off phase two of a 1,300-home estate north of Gloucester could be given the go-ahead next week.

The proposed 175 homes are the second phase of seven in a large development that would see 1,300 homes built north of Innsworth Lane, as well as a primary school, business park and a community centre.

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s planning committee will consider housebuilder Taylor Wimpey’s application next week.

Access is proposed to be provided via Frogfurlong Lane, according to a council document.

If approved, the types of homes on offer would be 14 one-bedroom, 18 two-bedroom, 86 three-bedroom, 53 four-bedroom and four five-bedroom in a mix of apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached.

A total of 69 homes would be affordable.

Churchdown Parish Council objected to the plans due to being built on a flood plain and raised concerns on potential traffic congestion on Frogfurlong Lane.

A council officer has recommended councillors approve the reserved matters application as it has “acceptable” arrangements such as layout and access.

The Lead Local Flood Authority made no objection to the application.

Phase one of the development, which includes 253 homes, was approved last year.

The borough council’s planning committee will consider the application on February 18, from 10am.
