Plans have now been submitted for a development of new homes on land to the north east of Seaton Village near The Coachman Inn.
We are seeking detailed planning for 69 homes on the site with associated infrastructure.
The development will bring a number of benefits to the local area, including a new public open space for the community. The proposal includes for a wide mix of 2-4 bedroom properties of which 13 will be classed as affordable, to be sold to local residents at a discounted rate. We use local sub contractors and suppliers where possible, delivering economic benefits and job creation back into local area.
If successful the New Homes Bonus of circa £500,000 will be reinvested in local services over a six year period.
Adam McNally, Development Planner for Story Homes said: “The changes we have made to our proposed plans demonstrates the value of community consultation we undertook in January and February this year, taking on board the positive and negative comments received.
We have taken on board residents comments for bungalows and introduced attractive swathe of open space to the east of the site to help assimilate the development to the open countryside beyond. These decisions have reduced the number of homes on the development to 69.
“We have responded to surface water drainage concerns in the village by proposing a SUDS pond that will be sized larger than regulation requirements which will improve the existing drainage in the area, and reduce existing flood risk to properties downstream on Ling Beck.
“With regards to the former mineworkings, a detailed site investigation has been carried out and a full remediation plan has been designed. Residents can be assured that this will make safe the mineworkings.
“ All being well we would look to start work on site in May 2017 with the first home completed by Christmas 2017.”
