Land off Watery Lane, Codsall

Off Watery Lane - Codsall - Staffordshire - WV8 1EW

A development of 180 new homes on land off Watery Lane in Codsall, Staffordshire.

  • Land off Watery Lane

    A new development of 180 homes on land off Watery Lane in Codsall.

    The application site already benefits from outline planning permission for residential development, which was granted in September 2015 following completion of a Section 106 Agreement.

    In December 2015 the site was identified as one of four preferred options for residential development in Codsall by the local authority in the emerging Site Allocation Development Plan document. The principle of residential development on the land is therefore established.

    Our ‘reserved matters’ planning application will deal with detailed issues which have not already been approved at outline stage, such as property design, layout and landscaping.

    Under our proposals, 40% of the new homes will be provided as affordable housing, to be administered by a council-approved housing association for local people in housing need.

    In order to allow local residents and key stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about our proposals, we held a public consultation event at St Nicholas Parish Rooms, Church Road, Codsall, on Wednesday 30th March 2016 between 4pm and 8pm.

    Visitors were able to view our emerging proposals, speak to experts from our project team, ask questions and provide us with their feedback on the scheme.

    The comments we received from local residents and stakeholders during the public consultation period that ran until Wednesday 13th April 2016 helped us to refine our emerging plans before we finalised and submitted a reserved matters planning application to South Staffordshire District Council in June 2016.

  • About the site

    The site lies to the north of Sandy Lane and the west of Watery Lane, on the northern edge of the village of Codsall, Staffordshire.

    The land consists of two open fields last used for agriculture, bounded by hedgerows and some trees, and covers approximately 7.6 hectares (18.78 acres).

    The outline permission already granted allows for residential development with associated access, landscaping, open space and drainage infrastructure.

  • What's proposed

    Our development is designed to work within the constraints and opportunities of the site and is a scheme that respects the area’s surroundings.


    Our proposals include the following key elements:


    • 180 high-quality new homes

    • A mix of property types and sizes to suit people in a range of circumstances

    • One, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes

    • A provision of affordable housing (40%) including some bungalows for local people in housing need

    • Areas of public open space

    • Vehicular access to be taken from the fourth arm of an existing roundabout off Watery Lane. The roundabout was constructed to facilitate future development in this location

    • An emergency access to also be established off Watery Lane

    • A new footpath to be built along Watery Lane connecting the development with the allotments to the north.

    The latest proposed layout of the development can be found below:

  • Community benefits

    We believe our proposals will carry wider benefits to the community of Codsall beyond the provision of new homes. These benefits include a number of significant financial contributions that will be made towards the local community as part of our proposed development, in agreement with the relevant local authorities. These will be in the form of a Section 106 Agreement that will include financial contributions for:

    • Education

    • Green infrastructure

    • On-site equipped play area

    • A travel plan including highways infrastructure and pedestrian/cycle links through the site to both Watery Lane and Sandy Lane.

    Further details of these contributions will be released once finalised with the council. A general breakdown of the economic benefits can be found in the graphic below:
