The image below shows the proposed layout of our development. It is intended as a guide to show you how the properties, open spaces and internal roads could be arranged. This layout is not final and changes could be made to the layout we submit as part of our planning application, depending on the comments we receive during our pre-application public consultation and subsequent discussions with the local authority.

- 84 new homes
- A mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom properties
- 15% affordable housing (12 homes), in line with outline planning consent
- Vehicular access from Golf Links Lane
- Landscaping and informal areas of open space
- Pedestrian and cycle links to the surrounding area
Our proposed scheme seeks to create a high-quality development that can help to fulfil the local need for market and affordable housing while respecting the character and heritage of the surrounding area.
The images below illustrate how our proposed new homes could look, showing examples of some of the architectural styles, features and building materials we are proposing to use.
Examples of how our proposed new homes could look.
- Traditional design in keeping with the character of the local area
- Architectural styles, features and building materials to reflect local character
- A mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes
- Mainly 2-storey buildings with a small number of 2.5 and 3-storey properties
Access and drainage proposals
Access to the proposed development will be provided by a new ‘T-junction’ with Golf Links Lane, of 6 metre radii, as shown on the plan pictured below. This is a standard means of achieving access to a development of this scale.
Access and roadways within the site are to Shropshire County Council’s specification, and will be designed in agreement with the council's requirements.
A hierarchical system of road design has been followed when considering the site layout; the main road within the site comprises an Estate Road, of 5.5 metres width. An Access Road is also proposed off this of 4.8m width, serving a small number of units in the east of the site. Finally, a limited number of plots will be served by private drives.

Surface water arising from the development will be restricted to a maximum discharge rate of 10.2 litres/second, the existing greenfield runoff rate for the 1 in 2 year storm, with a 20% betterment.
Surface water will be discharged to an existing drainage outfall in the north of the site, mimicking the existing situation. This provides a significant betterment against the existing situation whereby surface water may runoff in an uncontrolled, unrestricted manner. Surface water discharge will be restricted to this rate for all storm events to the 1 in 100+30% Climate Change storm. This will be achieved through the provision of a Sustainable Drainage System to serve the development.
Storage to enable this discharge rate will be provided within the sewer system itself, by way of large diameter pipes, as well as geocellular crate attenuation storage. In terms of the treatment of surface water prior to discharge, this will be facilitated through the potential incorporation of permeable paving and filter drainage features to separate out contaminants ‘at source’ within the development.
It is proposed that the storm sewer network (as well as the foul sewer network) will be adopted by Severn Trent Water.
