PLANS which could see up to 10 new homes built on one Uttoxeter road have been submitted to planning chiefs.
Mr J Kirk has applied to East Staffordshire Borough Council’s planning committee to create the houses on land to the back of Demontfort Way.
Although the outline planning application offers no detailed design work at this stage, the developer said that it is expected that between nine or 10 ‘detached dwellings will readily fit onto this site’.
The site can be accessed through Demontfort Way and will cross land which understood to be controlled by the borough council.
The developer said the vision from the access point is good from both the north and the south but added that some adjustment of the bollards may be needed if they use this access point.
The document concludes that ‘safe and suitable access to the site can indeed be formed.’
The design and access statement said: “The properties that lie along Demontfort Way are either large and traditional with high ceilings and roof heights or more modern but still having a large number of rooms.
“All adjacent development is two storey in height. A modern two storey, four to five bedroomed development of this application site with ‘aspirational housing’ would be similar in scale.
“This is an outline planning application. As such the detailed design of the scheme has not been considered to any meaningful degree at the stage.
“However, it is considered that the site could be capable of accommodating a modest residential scheme likely to be for nine or 10 units.”
The application also demonstrates elements of resource efficient design such as a sustainable location, a relatively small size and scale, appropriate to its setting, accessible to all the town amenities, close to bus routes and suitable for local builders.
The statement concludes: “The application seeks only outline planning permission. All detailed matters are subject to later detailed approval and this includes appearance, scale, materials and landscaping.
“The site has the potential to be developed in a number of ways with differing heights, locations and design styles possible.
“A key issue will be the protection of the mature tree at the front of the site. This can be readily achieved by an open and spacious layout.”
