Planning history

  • Welbeck purchased the freehold in 2011
  • We believed there to be strong planning potential and the site was later identified in the Council’s Adopted Core Strategy for 1,000+ houses, 12,650 sqm of employment floorspace and education provision
  • Planning Application submitted February 2015


Planning consent was granted in March 2016 for 1,000 dwellings and retail and commercial uses, with the first phase sold to a major housebuilder.
