Outline Planning Permission and reserved matters approval have been granted for the erection of 7 dwellings (3 detached houses and 4 semi-detached houses), 2 of which are affordable housing.
The site is situated in the centre of the popular North Shropshire village of Welshampton, which has useful local amenities to include a Gastro Pub, Parish Church, Primary School and thriving Village Hall. The nearby North Shropshire Lakeland town of Ellesmere (4 miles) has an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The larger centres, also, of Shrewsbury (18 miles), Whitchurch (10 miles) and Chester (25 miles) are, also, within easy motoring distance all of which have a more comprehensive range of amenities of all kinds.
The current layout takes into account power lines passing over the site, however, it is felt that it may be possible to achieve a better layout if these were under-grounded (subject to cost). There is also a planning requirement to provide a new bus shelter, as part of a road improvement scheme, and two of the semi-detached properties are to be affordable housing. The CIL payment on the current scheme is assessed at £57,336.43.
Prospective purchasers may wish to discuss the viability and possibility of other suitable layouts with the planning department at Shropshire Council. (Ref: 17/03500/REM)
