More Affordable Dwellings for Stroud District

16 October 2019

Ridge Planning team is delighted to have obtained planning permission on behalf of Edgemore Developments Ltd for 31 new dwellings in Chalford. The site is heavily constrained being a greenfield site, within the AONB, adjacent to Chalford Hill Conservation Area and listed buildings and outside the development boundary. The proposal incorporated 50% affordable dwellings.

The planning team at Ridge convinced the LPA that the scale of development is not overly large, would not be overtly prominent, the impact the proposed development would have on the nearby Conservation Area and heritage assets would be less than substantial and furthermore, the proposal would not cause considerable intrusion into the AONB when read against the wider setting.

Despite considerable local objection, a favourable recommendation was obtained at Committee and planning permission was granted.
