Plans to build 1,600 homes east of Stoke Gifford set for decision in coming weeks

Posted on Thursday 20th September 2018 at 9:10 pm by SH (Editor)

East of Harry Stoke New Neighbourhood: Sketch Composite Framework Plan (August 2016).

After more than two years of deliberations, two planning applications for a total of more than 1,600 new homes on former green belt land between Stoke Gifford and Hambrook look set to be brought to the decision table within the next few weeks.

The East of Harry Stoke New Neighbourhood site was allocated for development when South Gloucestershire Council’s Core Strategy was adopted in December 2013 and housebuilder Crest Nicholson submitted the two planning applications in August 2016. One application is for land south of the Great Western mainline railway and the other for land north of it.

The new neighbourhood will be accessed from the recently opened Stoke Gifford Transport Link (a.k.a. Stoke Gifford By-Pass) which provides a link between Parkway North and the A4174 Ring Road.

The application on land south of the railway, PT16/4782/O, seeks outline permission for a mixed use development including 1,290 new homes, a local centre, community facilities, landscaping and open space and detailed access junctions.

The application on land north of the railway, PT16/4928/O, is for 327 new homes and associated infrastructure and landscaping. This is a hybrid application, with full permission being sought for some elements and outline permission for others. The full application is for 150 homes, an earthworks strategy, access and public open space. Outline permission is being sought for 177 new homes, as well as a new primary school and nursery.

So-called ‘site inspection meetings’, attended by councillors who sit on the committee which will eventually determine the applications, are to be held in the coming weeks, with the first, for the application south of the railway, taking place this Friday (21st September).

The meeting point for Friday’s meeting, which is open to the public, is at the junction of the Stoke Gifford Transport Link and Oxleigh Way (entrance to Highbrook Park). Councillors are expected to arrive for the meeting at 10.45am.  An ‘issues for consideration’ report prepared ahead of the meeting may be viewed under item 11 of the agenda.

Planning applications lodged to build 1,600 new homes between Stoke Gifford and Hambrook

Posted on Tuesday 11th October 2016 at 7:24 pm by SH (Editor)

East of Harry Stoke New Neighbourhood: Sketch Composite Framework Plan (August 2016).

Housebuilder Crest Nicholson has submitted two planning applications to build a total of more than 1,600 new homes on open countryside to the south of Bradley Stoke.

The East of Harry Stoke New Neighbourhood site is allocated for development within South Gloucestershire Council’s adopted Core Strategy and consequently now sits outside the Green Belt.

The application on land north of the South Wales mainline railway is for 327 new homes and associated infrastructure and landscaping. This is a hybrid application, with full permission being sought for some elements and outline permission for others. The full application is for 150 homes, an earthworks strategy, access and public open space. Outline permission is being sought for 177 new homes, as well as a new primary school and nursery.

The application on land south of the South Wales mainline railway seeks outline permission for a mixed use development including 1,290 new homes, a local centre, community facilities, landscaping and open space and detailed access junctions.

John Terry, regional development director at Crest Nicholson, said:

“We’re excited to have reached this milestone for what is a strategically important scheme for the future of South Gloucestershire, which will deliver a considerable amount of much-needed housing to the authority in a non-Green Belt location.”

“Consultation on both applications was conducted comprehensively so that residents and stakeholders would be in possession of the full facts and we are grateful to all those who have responded to us. Feedback received has helped shape the development of the final submitted plans.”

As part of the consultation, a number of options were provided for local residents to consider with regard to the future operation of Hambrook Lane, which has recently reopened following work on the Stoke Gifford Transport Link.

Residents invited to discuss plans for 1,640 new homes at East of Harry Stoke

Posted on Thursday 21st April 2016 at 8:43 pm by SH (Editor)

Map presented as part a community consultation on plans for Crest Nicholson's proposed development at East of Harry Stoke.

Housebuilder Crest Nicholson is to hold public events to consult with local residents on two planning applications that it is preparing for land at East of Harry Stoke (EoHS), a large greenfield site that has been allocated for development within South Gloucestershire’s adopted Core Strategy.

The two planning applications will be submitted to the council later this spring to cover the land to the north and south of the railway line and linked by the currently under-construction Stoke Gifford Transport Link (known locally as the Stoke Gifford By-Pass).

The northern application will be for the development of up to 350 new homes, a primary school, public open space, and landscaping and drainage infrastructure.

The southern application is for outline permission for 1,290 homes, a new local centre, community uses and associated infrastructure.

Two consultation events will be held:

  • 3pm to 7pm on Tuesday 26th April at St Elizabeth’s Hall, Hambrook Lane, Hambrook BS16 1RT
  • 4pm to 8pm on Wednesday 27th April at The Poplar Rooms, Stoke Gifford Trust Hall, North Road, Stoke Gifford BS34 8PE

John Terry, Crest Nicholson’s regional development director, said:

“The aim of the development is to help create a lively, healthy and happy community with its own sense of identity that is well integrated with the surrounding communities.”

“Following extensive feedback from the local community over the strategic masterplan last year, we are now ready to discuss the next step in the process of delivering much-needed new homes.”

SGC is inviting comments on the developer’s masterplan through a public consultation which runs until 23rd April 2015 (recently extended from 11th April).
