PLANS for 202 homes on the former Polymer Latex site in Stoke Prior will go before Bromsgrove District Council’s planning committee on Monday (November 30).
Officers have recommended that full permission be given to the scheme and that delegated powers be granted to the head of planning to iron out the finer points of the proposal.
Among them are that there be a provision of affordable housing as part of the development, that funding be given to Aston Fields Middle School and St John’s Middle School to enhance education in the area and that the developers give a contribution to public transport improvements.
These will include bus stops on Shaw Lane and places to park bikes on Ryefields Road.
Officers have also requested the public open spaces by provided and maintained and feature play equipment for children.
The final one is for the developers to provide balancing ponds and a pumping station on the site to help with drainage.
A proposal for 157 properties and 850sq m of commercial development was given the green light on January 30, but this is the first time one featuring solely residential properties had been put forward.
Of the 202, 35 would be two-bedroom homes, 86 would be three-bedroom properties and 81 would have four bedrooms.
