SCALED-DOWN plans to build 30 homes in Tiddington look set to be given the green light.
Developers originally applied for outline permission to build 100 homes on both sides of Knights Lane earlier this year.
But the proposals were turned down by members of Stratford District Council’s planning committee back in March.
They said the homes would lead to an increase in traffic, which would add to the already traffic-choked roads, and the plans would have a significant visual impact on the area as well as resulting in the loss of agricultural land.
Developers then went back to the drawing board before re-submitting plans for 60 homes, which were rejected for the same reasons in August.
But officers are now recommending the latest scaled-down plans – for 30 homes – be approved subject to a number of conditions when they go before the council’s planning committee at a meeting on Wednesday (November 18).
An appeal has been submitted for both refusals and they will be combined into a joint inquiry, which is likely to be heard sometime around February 2016.
