Planning permission received for 84-home development in Oakham
Planning permission has been granted for a site off Uppingham Road in Oakham, which is set to provide 84 new homes for the area.
This autumn, Davidsons Homes received approval on its plans for the development, which will include areas of green open space and 25 affordable homes. Construction work has now started on the site.
The development will be accessed from a new T- junction on Uppingham Road, with footpaths either side of the new road. Contributions to support local education, health and other needs worth nearly £1million will also be made through Community Infrastructure Levy.
Simon Tyler, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes South, said: “Rutland is a beautiful part of the country and we’re very pleased to be building homes here which will reflect the existing architecture in the area. In fact, we’ve used local materials, including stone, to ensure that our houses will fit in well with their surroundings.
“It’s important of course that we don’t just build new homes, but the associated infrastructure to support those homes. That’s why the development will also consist of a new ‘village green’ and a balancing pond which will create a haven for local wildlife. Along with that, there will be an attractive play area and areas of green open space dotted throughout the site. These, along with key buildings, will give a real sense of place. After all, that’s what we do here at Davidsons – rather than just build houses, we create communities.
“As well as that, we’ll be providing 25 new affordable homes for the area, which will give young and local people an opportunity to get onto the property ladder. The site is very well connected to the town, so this will also be an ideal location for many.
“Our plans are progressing well, and we have now begun building work on the site. We’ll release details on our website as soon as they become available, so we urge anyone who may be interested to keep visiting to be among the first to receive information.”
