RESIDENTS of Stone will get the chance to have their say on plans to build 215 new homes on industrial land in Walton a week on Monday.
Proposals by Taylor Wimpey for the residential development on the land between Stafford Road and Tilling Drive will be on display at Walton Community Centre in Whitemill Lane between 2pm and 8pm on January 27.
Ken Phillips, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey North Midlands, said: “We want to give local people the chance to have their say on our development proposals and by taking part in this public consultation, Stone residents can help to influence our scheme before our planning application is finalised for submission
“We are confident that this development would not only fulfil a need for more high-quality family homes and affordable housing in the local area, but that it would also positively enhance the community for the benefit of everyone.
“Those visiting our public exhibition on Monday 27th January will be able to speak to the Taylor Wimpey project team to find out more, as well as tell us how they think our development should look and let us know their aspirations and priorities for the proposed scheme.”
The proposed development covers an area of approximately 16 acres to the west of Stafford Road.
With outline planning permission already in place for the site, Taylor Wimpey’s latest proposals will deal with detailed elements including property design, landscape, development layout and scale.
Under the proposals, Taylor Wimpey would provide a mix of housing types to suit a range of purchasers, with a proportion of the homes to be made available as affordable housing.
For those unable to attend the public exhibition all public consultation material will be available to access and respond to online at www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/tilling-drive from Monday 27th January.
