Kings Bromley, Staffordshire
In February 2019 we submitted an outline planning application for residential development of this 2.68 hectare site in the village of Kings Bromley which lies 7km north of Lichfield.
New housing is proposed for the village to help meet local needs and also to contribute to the wider supply of housing in the district.
The site is located next to existing residential properties and approximately 400m from the centre of Kings Bromley which has a local supermarket, pub and primary school. There is also a village hall, church and cricket club in the local area. The nearest high school is 5 km away in Barton-under-Needwood.
The indicative plan, submitted and validated in February 2019, is for 57 dwellings with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes and a mix of terrace and detached homes. 30% of the dwellings will be affordable housing as per Lichfield District Council’s policy requirements. A decision on the planning application is due in May 2019.
The application was refused by delegated powers on 14th May. We are reviewing the reasons for refusal together with the current Lichfield Council planning policies to determine our intentions.
We have made a resubmission to the planners for a residential development of up to 57 full affordable homes. A decision is expected in February 2020.
