Plans for new homes on site where Burntwood pub once stood are rejected

Plans to build 20 homes on the site of a former pub in Burntwood have been rejected.

Developers had hoped to get the go-ahead for 12 houses and eight apartments on land where The Greyhound once stood on Boney Hay Road.

But Lichfield District Council planning bosses described the proposals as an “over-intensive development”.

The latest rejection follows a number of previous schemes to redevelop the land in recent years.

Full details of the proposals together with the rejection notice can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

    bit late now. The pub has gone. I must say that it is a pleasant change for a council top be saying a development is too intensive. Its usually not intensive enough to please central government guidelines on density . and they’d know all about being dense.
