  • Land off Browns Lane

    We have submitted a ‘reserved matters’ planning application to Lichfield District Council for a new development of high-quality homes on land to the north of Browns Lane, Tamworth.

    Outline planning permission for a residential development of 165 new homes with access from Manston View was granted by the council in February 2015, following a public consultation in November 2013. This established the general principle of development and access for the site.

    Our ‘reserved matters’ planning application deals with the detailed matters of design which have not already been agreed at outline stage. It has been submitted following detailed discussions with senior planning officers at Lichfield District Council relating to the preferred housing mix and design principles for the scheme.

    To view and comment on our latest planning application you can visit Lichfield District Council's online planning pages (search application reference number 15/00807/REMM).

    Alternatively, more details about our proposals are available on the 'What's proposed' tab of this web page.

    Community engagement is one of the key principles of our organisation and, in addition to any comments you may wish to make direct to the local authority, we will be happy to address any specific queries you may have about our proposals. To get in touch, click the 'Email us' link at the top of this page.

  • The development site

    The development site covers an area of 6.8 hectares and is currently used as agricultural land.

    It is located on the north-eastern fringes of the Tamworth settlement area, to the north of Browns Lane.

    The site is bordered by existing residential properties in Browns Lane to the west, while open fields lie to the north. The eastern boundary is formed by the railway line.


  • Our proposals

    The existing outline planning permission for the Browns Lane site (February 2015) has established the principle of residential development on this land.

    Our reserved matters planning application deals with detailed elements of design which were not dealt with at outline stage. Our proposed development layout and examples of typical street scenes from the scheme are illustrated below, while key facts about the development are as follows:

    • 165 new homes to suit a wide range of circumstances
    • A mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes
    • Mainly 2-storey properties with some 2.5-storey homes (2 storeys with rooms in the roof space) in key locations
    • Green open spaces and a children’s play area
    • The majority of existing trees retained and supplemented with new planting
    • 25% of homes to be provided as affordable housing via a local housing association for people in both Lichfield and Tamworth districts
