New plans for up to 198 houses to be built on the outskirts of a village have been submitted.

Gladman Developments Ltd had previously applied to build 230 homes off West Street in Stanwick, but the scheme was turned down by councillors earlier this year.

The developer has now come back with revised plans to build up to 198 houses on land north of West Street and it is hoping it can win approval this time from East Northamptonshire Council for outline planning permission.

Documents submitted as part of the new application state: “This planning application is an evolution of the previous scheme and proposes to reduce the number of units, therefore no further discussion with the council or local community has been considered necessary as the principal issues raised in advance of and during the determination period of the previous application are understood and have been considered through this revised scheme.”

The new proposals have reduced the proposed number of houses by 32 from the previous application, which was refused planning permission on March 12 this year and is now the subject of a separate appeal.

The site is to the west of the village and is currently arable farmland.

If approved, the proposed development would comprise of up to 198 houses, a children’s play area, retention of existing landscape features where possible, a trim trail and community park and linking footpaths to wider cycle and footpath networks.

The report says Stanwick has sufficient services and facilities to accommodate this level of housing growth and will be capable of delivering a high quality residential scheme.

It also states: “The overall objective of the scheme is to provide a good mix of housing sizes and tenures within a high quality residential environment.”
