Land promotion firm submits outline planning for 75 new homes

The world of work

Land promotion company Richborough has submitted an outline planning application for up to 75 new homes in Tytherington, South Gloucestershire.

Plans for the 11.78-acre site off Duck Street propose a range of house types and sizes, with 35% affordable housing provision. The site is located close to local facilities.

Key elements of the planning application include new areas of public open space including a new community orchard and children’s play space, new vehicular and pedestrian access, a package of measures to deliver modern energy-efficient homes that are resilient to the impacts of climate change, ecological enhancements including new planting to enable significant biodiversity net gain and a sustainable drainage system incorporating enhancements to the existing drainage

Alex Anderson, regional director said: “We’re delighted to have submitted this planning application following public consultation with the community, the Design Review Panel and South Gloucestershire Council.

“A significant amount of technical work has been carried out to assess the impacts of our scheme and to maximise the benefits for new homeowners and the existing Tytherington community. We are seeking to create a high-quality development that we can all be proud of.

“The advice we have received from the Design Review Panel has been very helpful and has helped to shape the production of a design code, as can be seen in the Design and Access Statement, that has been expertly produced by Nineteen47. We look forward to working with South Gloucestershire Council and its consultees to seek a positive outcome regarding the planning application, and expect to start marketing the site to prospective developers in the spring of 2024.”
