A simple bungalow turned into 4 detached houses .. All outside the village development boundary in contravention of the NPPF.

When one could become FOUR

A speculative application on Bath Road Eastington seeks to turn the location of one bungalow into FOUR full size properties.

The plans fall well short of meeting planning guidelines. The site lies outside the village envelope, in an unsustainable location, in fills the gap between village and hamlet and harms the local environment.

Details of the application can be seen at Stroud.gov.uk/planning using reference S14/1709/OUT

Bath Road plans rejected

PLANS to build 30 new homes in Eastington have been unanimously refused by Stroud District Council.

Members of SDC’s development control committee unanimously agreed to turn down the application for 30 homes in a field off Bath Road at a meeting on Tuesday, August 12.

The officers’ had already recommended the application for refusal due to the fact that the proposed housing development was outside the settlement boundary and therefore recommended refusing planning permission.

KER aims to inform local people about developments in their neighbourhood and to enable them to have their voice heard in the planning process.
