New Homes for Tewkesbury

25 February 2019

The Ridge planning team is delighted to have obtained planning permission for 30 new dwellings on land at Wheatpieces, Tewkesbury, including affordable housing.

On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, the team at Ridge project managed the planning application through the pre-application consultation and submission stages. The site is a greenfield site and is situated adjacent to John Moore Primary School. The main issues related to the principle of the development, loss of recreational area, density, ecology and highway safety.

The Ridge planning team presented a strong case and were able to demonstrate that the benefits of the proposal outweighed any harm which included the loss of the informal area of open space.
