Cotswold Homes and Clifton Homes, working in conjunction with the landowners, are proposing a new residential development of up to 60 dwellings on land at Trinity Lane, Chipping Sodbury. The proposals seek to develop the land in a low density, sensitive manner, in order to assist in meeting the area's housing needs.
Cotswold Homes, who will build the development, work on numerous projects within the local area and design bespoke properties which respond positively to their local context. They are not a volume housebuilder and are based in the local area. Sharing their proposals with the community and seeking your input is an important part of the planning process and this consultation exercise aims to set out how the emerging proposals have been formulated and underpinned by technical evidence relating to matters such as landscape impact, highways, flooding and drainage etc. We hope that your comments and local knowledge will help inform and adapt our proposals further. We consider this genuine partnership approach sets us apart from other house builders.
We have recently had pre-application discussions with South Gloucestershire Council and also made a short presentation to the Town Council. We are now seeking the views of the wider community.
Further details in relation to how to submit your comments are given later, and based on the comments received, the development proposals will be finalised and submitted as a formal planning application to South Gloucestershire Council in Summer 2017. After this, there will be further opportunities to make additional comments directly to South Gloucestershire.
A letter was distributed to residents who live near to the site which described how they could obtain further information in relation to the proposals, and also get involved in the consultation process. This letter can be downloaded via the link below:
