A planning application for 118 houses in Sutton has been recommended for approval by Ashfield District Council, subject to conditions.

The application by Gleason’s Regeneration Ltd to build the houses on land to the rear of 249 and 251 Alfteton Road will be considered by Ashfield District Council’s planning committee next Thursday (August 28)

The development proposes 118 dwellings comprising a mixture of two storey pitched roof dwellings, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom, terraced, semi-detached and detached dwellings.

The breakdown is 35 x 2 bed semis; 40 x 3 bed semis; 37 x 3 bed detached; & 6 x 4 bed detached, all served by integral or detached garages and/or car parking spaces.

The report states that the principle of residential development at this site was established by the granting of permission, at appeal, of the outline application in 2014. The site also now forms part of a larger tract of land identified for housing development in the emerging local plan.

The recommendation is to pprove subject to the satisfactory completion of a S106 Agreement and to the following conditions: If a S106 Agreement is not agreed, executed and signed within 3 months the proposal may be reconsidered because it may not amount to being sustainable development.
