PLANS for a new access to accommodate a 214-home development have now been passed.
St Modwen Developments already has approval for the housing development for the land close to Swadlincote Lane, Castle Gresley and has now been given permission for the latest round of plans.
It means there will be a new access and spine road from Burton Road with associated drainage, as well as an extension of the existing pond and the building of a sub station.
Landscaping is proposed adjacent to the spine road and the enlargement of the existing pond is required for attenuation purposes in accordance with the drainage strategy for the site.
An additional temporary ‘loop’ road is proposed off the spine road which will serve the site compound during the construction process.
Works to enlarge the existing pond and topsoil stripping are due to commence this month.
