The former Rossington Colliery already has the benefit of Outline Planning Permission for a mixed use development (12/01107/OUTA); consisting of a local superstore, hotel, restaurant, fast food outlet, petrol station, community building, land for a new Primary school and up to 1200 residential units.
Taylor Wimpey have acquired another parcel of land within this, and are in the process of a public consultation, prior to submitting a reserved matters planning application for circa 190 family homes.
What are reserved matters?
The Outline permission established the principle of re-developing the site for mixed use; the means of highway access; & a design code which provides a set of design rules and parameters which any design proposal must adhere to.
Taylor Wimpey is therefore required to submit details of the site layout, appearance, scale & landscaping for the development to Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council.
