DETAILED plans to build 22 homes at a greenfield site in a village near Welshpool have been lodged with Powys County Council.
The reserved matters planning application also deals with the layout, the house types and their size as well as proposed landscaping for the site which is situated off the B4392 road to the east of Groes-Lwyd and west of the Rhoslan housing estate in Guilsfield.
Oswestry based Pickstock Homes Ltd has come up with a proposal for a mix of two, three and four bedroom attached and detached houses as well as two and three bedroom semi-detached bungalows.
Pickstock homes said: “The proposed site layout has been altered to accommodate a range of house types from the Pickstock homes portfolio.
“The house type mix has been derived to reflect the demands of the local market and is intended to complement the style, character and scale of the existing properties in the immediate vicinity and, therefore, to have a positive impact on the character and appearance of the local area.”
The company explain that the revised site layout includes four affordable homes
Pickstock homes said: “In changing the proposed house type mix, the intention has been to create a site layout that feels less dense and regimented than the layout approved at outline stage whilst better complementing the existing properties in the immediate vicinity.”
An outline planning application which decides the principle of building on a site was approved by Powys planners under delegated powers back in April 2020.
The outline application proposal had been opposed by some villagers who submitted letters raising concerns about flooding and drainage problems at the site.
Objectors also feared the scheme would lead to an increase in noise and pollution.
Powys planners are expected to make a decision on the reserved matters application by April 27.
