The Revised Application

The revised proposals comprise residential development for 265 homes. As previously, the development would include associated infrastructure including attenuation areas, open space and enhancement of accessibility to the woodland areas.

Redditch will continue to act as lead authority due to the majority of the site falling within the Redditch administrative boundary.

The development would be accessed by two primary vehicular accesses onto Far Moor Lane as well as minor accesses onto Far Moor Lane for the dwellings fronting the road.

Since the original submission, and in response to a number of local comments and the requirements of statutory consultees, the layout has been revised.

The revised proposals have sought to retain key groups of trees, which now feature within the green infrastructure, and have introduced additional areas of new planting and landscaping.

The extent of new roads planned has decreased, and new footpath linkages and areas of open space are accessible for existing and future residents.
