This site is located across two local authority boundaries – Cannock Chase and South Staffordshire. Greenlight Developments promotes the whole site as a housing site, a site which builds upon the previously proposed housing allocation on part of the land (the car auction site), as well as providing an opportunity to create a housing site in a location that ‘rounds off’ the existing urban edge to the west of Cannock, minimising encroachment of the urban area further into the Green Belt.
This site sits directly to the north of the development boundary for Worcester City and the housing allocation in the South Worcestershire Development Plan – Policy SWDP45/4: Gwillams Farm, Worcester North Urban Extension. Greenlight Developments is currently in the process of engaging with Historic England to seek their views on our development approach to the site; as well as promoting the site through the South Worcestershire Development Plan Review.
The site forms part (albeit a small part) of a wider ‘existing employment area’ (known as Fradley Park). As part of the current Lichfield District Local Plan Allocations examination, Greenlight Developments and Lichfield District Council agreed to an employment policy to help avoid the long-term protection of sites allocated for employment use, which allows for sites to be brought forward for alternative uses, such as housing.
