Up to 400 homes could be built on land near to Nuneaton’s largest tip. Six months after initial plans were revealed, the proposals to build a mini housing estate on land off Tuttle Hill have now been submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.
When the proposal first emerged last November, it included plans for a local centre which would include uses such as a ‘canalside’ pub, doctor’s surgery, shops, a coffee shop and small hotel.
It is not known if these are included in the now submitted application as exact details are yet to be unveiled.
But Town Hall planners have set a decision date for the housing estate by July 3.
What does the application say?
As well as the homes, the application states that associated access works and landscaping works would be needed and open space would be provided within the development.
There would also be the need to build two bridges over the Coventry Canal.
At the end of November last year, households in the area were invited to a public exhibition about the plans.
Posters were put up in the area as well as leaflets.
‘High quality homes’
In the posters publicising the public consultation, FCC Environment, which owns the land around Judkins tip and is believed to be behind the fresh planning application, explained: “The site is located to the north of Tuttle Hill and would be accessed by improving the existing junction that serves the site and the existing Household Waste Recycling Centre.
“Preliminary designs for this improved access will be available to view. FCC Environment believe that this site could bring new high quality homes to this part of town in a way that is sympathetic to the character of the area and its setting.
“The housing development would contain new areas of public space and landscaping and provide a range of houses and flats from one to four bedroom.”
