New plan for 58 homes at Old Nursery, Framfield

The site where 88 new homes could be built in Framfield is on the bottom right of this Google Earth image.

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.

Buffering

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 An appeal against refusal was submitted but has since been withdrawn.

Farmyard-style

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”.
