The latest phase of a new housing development in Handsacre have been given the green light by planning chiefs.

The reserved matters application for 111 homes on land next to Hayes Meadow Primary School has been approved by Lichfield District Council.

It will be the latest phase of the housing development which has already seen 70 properties given the green light with a number nearing completion already.

The additional 111 homes will be range from one to four bedrooms.

An initial plan had proposed a minimum of 20 bungalows be built as part of the scheme, but a planning report revealed an amendment to this had been made.

“The outline consent included a condition which required there to be no more than 200 dwellings provided on the site and a minimum of 20 dwellings to be of single storey construction.

“Due to the take up of land within the site by HS2 following approval of the outline consent, the overall number of dwellings which can be delivered on the site has been reduced.

“A variation of this condition to reword the requirement to 10% of the dwellings being single storey construction has since been approved.

“The provision of 18 bungalows as set out in this proposal therefore accords with the requirements of the outline consent.”
