At our last virtual planning committee of 2020, we are pleased to announce Wealden District Council Planning Committee (North), resolved to grant outline planning permission for 130 homes on a 18.3 acre site known as Brook View, north of Walshes Road, Crowborough.
This is phase 2 development of this site, with outline planning permission for 100 homes and 35% affordable housing already granted on phase 1.
Dawn Adams, in-house Senior Planning Manager for Catesby Estates oversaw the application for this sensitively designed scheme with 35% affordable housing, significant public open space and extensive off-site highways improvements to increase road safety and reduce traffic queuing for the benefit of the wider area, and both new and existing residents.
Following extensive community engagement and highways consultation, Planning Committee members voted in line with the Planning Officer’s recommendation to approve the application, who recognised development in this sustainable location would contribute towards remedying the housing shortage in the area.
Once permission is received the site will be sold, with a view to the housebuilder being onsite late 2021 with first sales the following year.
