New plans for 58 homes, instead of 88, have been submitted for The Old Nursery, in Framfield.
Twenty of the homes are described as ‘affordable’.
The planning application before Wealden Council says five acres of publicly accessible open spaces and semi-natural amenity space would be included.
And, a design and access statement says, there would be extensive landscape buffering reflecting the rural character and parkland setting of the area, along with a pedestrian route linking to an existing public right of way.
The site is described as an open field and a disused plant nursery, providing “ample opportunity to form an extension to the village”.
A previous planning application for 88 homes was refused by Wealden Council. An appeal against refusal was submitted but has since been withdrawn.
The latest design and access statement says that following feedback on the previous application a revised concept plan seeks to break the development up into “farmyard-style clusters thus enabling greater public amenity space and views through the site”.
