Taylor Wimpey has submitted an outline planning application which scopes out the principles of development, with the look, design and final layout to be determined at a later stage. The proposals include new areas of open space, children’s play area and new access into the site from Barkby Road.
The proposals help to meet the growing need for new homes in the local area and would provide a mix of new homes, from one to five-bedroom properties, including 30% affordable housing in line with Charnwood Borough Council policy. This would include shared ownership and social housing. The housing mix would contain homes of no more than three storeys high and reflect local architectural styles.
A public exhibition of our proposals was held at Syston Community Centre on Wednesday 25th April. If you were not able to visit the exhibition, you can view our consultation boards in a PDF format here.
Feedback from the public exhibition was collected and considered in the preparation of the outline planning application. The outline plans, including a Transport Assessment and other associated documents and contact details, can be accessed on the Planning Portal of Charnwood Borough Council’s website here. You can comment on these plans directly on the Planning Portal.
