Land off Wolverhampton Road
We are currently preparing proposals for a new residential development of 42 homes which will form part of our existing Thomas Beddoes Court development in Shifnal.
Thomas Beddoes Court, located off Wolverhampton Road, was launched in November 2010 and comprises 178 properties, including two-bedroom starter homes and five-bedroom family homes.
When planning permission was first granted for Thomas Beddoes Court in July 2010, Taylor Wimpey offered to safeguard a parcel of land within the site for 18 months to be used as a medical centre.
However, there was local opposition to a medical centre being built in this location, resulting in a 1,000-signature petition. The project stalled and NHS funding was subsequently lost.
Alternative sites have since been identified in Shifnal for the medical centre, including land off Haughton Road, which releases the land at Thomas Beddoes Court for residential development.
Before we submit a new planning application to Shropshire Council, we gave local people the opportunity to provide their feedback on our emerging scheme through a public consultation.
These comments will be taken into account as we finalise our masterplan and prepare to submit our planning application.
