Status

Outline permission obtained at appeal

Project

LVA has successfully promoted this 5-acre site on the edge of the village of Worton in Wiltshire. The site is adjacent to the settlement boundary and provides a logical growth point for new homes in the village to positively contribute towards local and district-wide housing need.

An outline application submitted to the Council in September 2020 for up to 26 dwellings was refused in January 2021 due to conflict with the adopted development plan, landscape impact due to the development of a greenfield site, and the effect of the proposal on highways safety. An appeal was raised in July 2021 with the Inspector’s decision issued on 10 December 2021 allowing permission on the basis that development of up to 26 houses would be an important contribution to housing land supply in the district.
