Site and context
The application site is situated in the village of Dosthill, part of the wider settlement of Tamworth. The site is situated to the southern settlement edge of Dosthill and comprises 7.23 hectares (18 acres) of brownfield land. The site is bounded on two sides by the A51 Tamworth Road and Rush Lane. The north-eastern boundary is bound by the Birmingham-Derby train line and the southwestern boundary abuts up to a former landfill site and mineral extraction site. Dosthill Conservation Area is located Northwest of the site off Church Road where St Pauls Church is situated.
The proposals at Rush Lane will provide 116 new dwellings of varying sizes and tenures which will assist North Warwickshire’s housing land supply plus Class B1 office facilities of up to 7,000 square metres. The scheme represents a deliverable residential development in a sustainable location and is a logical extension to the existing urban area of Dosthill. The inclusion of several public open spaces and a high standard of design and construction will enable a wider visual amenity of the locality, offering visual improvements to the at present despoiled appearance of the site.
An outline application was submitted and subsequently appealed. We withdrew the appeal to pursue an employment led scheme on the site, and an initial pre-application response has been received from the Council.
