  • Overview

    Land at Chestnut Tree Farm

    We are currently promoting the site for a housing allocation in the Tewkesbury Local Plan Review.  If included in this document, we will prepare a planning application for housing on the site and we will consult with the local community and stakeholders on the proposals.

  • About the site

    The proposed development site

    The land we are proposing to develop covers a total area of 5.3 hectares (13 acres). It is situated behind existing homes to the north of the A38 at Twigworth.

    The site is formed from an existing orchard area, an arable field and an overgrown, wooded area which includes a pond. Mature hedgerows and trees bound the site on three sides and adjoin boundaries to the existing dwellings to the south. A public footpath runs beyond the northern boundary.

    Planning background

    Tewkesbury Borough Council is currently preparing a new Local Plan which will identify housing sites. We are promoting the land at Chestnut Tree Farm for a housing allocation in this document.

    The site is being put forward as an appropriately sized site for Twigworth, which is outside of the Green Belt and the high flood risk zones. It can deliver an appropriate mix of housing to meet local housing needs including the provision of affordable housing.

    The site benefits from:

    • Existing footways located along both sides of the A38 Tewkesbury Road.
    • Existing Public Rights of Way (PRoW) routes which are located in close proximity to the site, including Twigworth Footpath 2 (located to the west of the site), Twigworth Footpath 3 (located to the immediate north of the site), and Twigworth Footpath 6 (located to the south of the site).
    • Bus stops (in both directions) located along the A38, to the immediate south of the site. 

    A range of improvements can be introduced as part of the development proposals:

    • A single point of vehicular access, which is proposed directly from Sandhurst Lane, with pedestrian footways along both sides.
    • A new 2m wide pedestrian footway located along the western side of Sandhurst Lane, between the proposed site access and the A38 Tewkesbury Road.
    • New uncontrolled pedestrian crossing facilities across the A38 Tewkesbury Road (at the A38 Tewkesbury Road/Sandhurst Lane junction and to the south of the site).
    • Ecological enhancements including additional planting and open space.
    • High quality homes of a range of sizes.
    • Affordable homes to meet local housing needs.

    About our proposals

    The site is being promoted for a housing allocation through the emerging Tewkesbury Local Plan Review.  Following the adoption of this document by the Council we would prepare a planning application for the site.  This will include a mix of house sizes including 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes, a sensitive design to reflect the character of the local area and the rural edge setting, a proportion of affordable homes which will be agreed with Tewkesbury Borough Council, a new access into the site, a new area of public open space and ecological enhancements.
