Taylor Wimpey have submitted a new planning application for parcel WV28. This is the area of land between Fernacre Road and the Community Centre. The new application is for a lower number of houses than their previous application, approved in 2010. That was for 37 dwellings, this one is for 32. The reduction is a result of the new plan not including any barn-style apartment blocks.
As with other recent planning applications for East Wichel, there has been a change in design to reduce the size of the rear ‘mews’. As a result, there are more garages at the front. In the original plan most were behind houses and accessed from the mews.
Those wishing to comment on the application should do so by Monday 5th August. Comments can be submitted online.
