Planning chiefs praise retirement homes development for Bishop's Waltham

First published in News

PLANNING chiefs have heaped praise on a new housing development for Bishop’s Waltham.

The green light has been given for 34 retirement homes at the Travers Yard scrap business on Coppice Hill.

The proposal from McCarthy & Stone was voted through unanimously at a meeting in Winchester Guildhall.

McCarthy & Stone recently completed a public consultation which was met with a generally favourable response from residents, as well as the parish council. The application drew seven letters of objection though, with road safety issues chief among the concerns.

But city councillors voted unanimously in favour of the development.

Under the deal, McCarthy & Stone will have to meet 19 conditions, including pedestrian crossing improvements at Coppice Hill, a £382,612 contribution towards affordable housing, and £7,313 towards providing open space.
