WILTSHIRE COMPANY SUBMITS OUTLINE PLAN FOR HOUSING OFF WOOTTON’S STATION ROAD

Outline plans have been revealed — after years of talks with the Isle of Wight Council — for housing behind existing properties in Wootton.

The plans, submitted by Wiltshire company Maritime and Provincial Ltd, are looking at whether the nature of a proposed development on Station Road would be acceptable to the council before any further detailed proposals are put forward,

Through the outline application, only the access to the greenfield site — which is between 67 and 69 Station Road — would be acceptable.

Other planning considerations like the appearance, scale, layout and landscaping would be dealt with through reserved matters applications made to the council at a later date.

Planning agents, BCM, has, however, included an indicative masterplan of the site for 29 dwellings, including parking and gardens although it is only for illustrative purposes. Of the 29 dwellings, some are proposed to be bungalows, it is thought 18 would be market dwellings and 11 affordable or social properties.

BCM say there has been extensive consultations and pre-application discussions with Island Roads and the council over a number of years for advice and guidance.

Over the talks, the scheme increased to 35 and then 40 units before being reduced to the initial scope for 29 units, having taken into account revisions made to trees, access, residential and visual amenity, drainage solutions and ecology.

In planning documents, BCM says the scheme has evolved and paid due regard to existing constraints like adjacent residential area, topography, views and other landscape feature to be well situated against the landscape.

It’s a green field. What’s not to approve?
Good to see environmentally-aware “planning agents” maintaining their usual standards of responsibility.

No more snort/swill over spill hutches on our Island. Build for local people, the homeless working families or NHS staff at a subsidised rent. We don’t want any more low life shipped here poisoning the place

We do not want companies from wiltshire turning up here and wrecking our environment to line their own pockets – they can build in wiltshire if they want to.

we want greenfields with trees and no more houses. The climate emergency requires more trees on more greenfields to remove more CO2, not more houses. Builders like these, cause more problems for us that live here, and reap the benefits themselves, whilst living in a nice area, far away from the mess and misery they cause.

yes – it says Jeremy james Gully, commercial estate agent, is a director on companies house.

another environment wrecker, hell bent on ignoring the climate emergency and doing everything he can to remove more of the islands ability to reduce airborne CO2 by building houses on the very fields, plant life and trees that remove the CO2 – talk about blatant stupidity.

Are companies off the Island allowed to build on the Island?
