Plans for a new supported housing development and private houses on a derelict former pub site off Cockshott Lane will be discussed by councillors next week.

Members of the south and west plans panel will meet next Thursday to provide a position statement to developers over plans for 11 houses, one block of four bungalows with staff facilities and one block of 13 flats with one staff accommodation unit.

The houses would be a mix of private and social housing, with the houses intended for the open market and the flats to be managed by a housing association.

The proposals, by MD Construction, were originally submitted in May 2019, but have drawn eight letters of objection from nearby residents.

The position statement will report on the progress of the application and seek Members’ comments on key planning issues associated with the development. A council report said:

“The proposals are well advanced but some outstanding matters – principally around tree protection, landscaping and future use of / access to (allocated) greenspace and biodiversity net gain – remain. It is considered that members’ feedback on these matters would be beneficial prior to determination.”

The front section of the site is the former Wyther Park Hotel, which was demolished in 2004.

The plans can be viewed in full here. The council report can be read here. The panel meets next Thursday, 28 January, at 1.30pm. You can watch the meeting live here.
