A reserved matters application for 50 dwellings on Site 1 comprising 2/3/4 bedroom houses, an equipped play area and landscaping.
At the same time we will submit a full planning application for 41 dwellings on Site 2, also including 2/3/4 bedroom homes.
Both applications are intended to compliment each other and provide for a joined-up approach to development of these two adjoining sites.
A single access from Brighouse Road which is already approved will serve all the dwellings but a right turn lane & pedestrian islands will be formed to assist both vehicular & pedestrian movement.
The planning applications are due to be submitted towards the end of November 2020.
We would ask that comments are made by 5pm 19 November 2020.
Traffic and Air Quality
The traffic and air quality implications of our proposals for Site 1 were approved as part of the outline planning permission and therefore they do not need to be re-visited as part of the reserved matters application, which will instead focus on detailed design.
Our full application for Site 2 will include transport and air quality reports to consider potential impacts at the Hipperholme crossroads. However, it is noteworthy that as part of the Local Plan process the Council considered these issues before deciding to allocate the site for housing, and this included use of a traffic modelling exercise. This indicates that the Local Planning Authority is satisfied that development can take place on Site 2 without significant adverse impacts on traffic and air quality.
Existing education infrastructure was considered as part of the outline application for Site 1 and considered suitable for that development.
The Council will consider capacity in existing schools once the application for Site 2 is submitted. If this is not sufficient, then we may need to pay a financial contribution for improvements commensurate with the additional demands created by the development.
