Land at Rush Lane
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 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 165 new dwellings of varying sizes and tenures which will assist North Warwickshire’s housing land supply; a deliverable residential development in a sustainable location; a logical extension to the existing urban area of Dosthill; several public open spaces; a high standard of design and construction enabling an enhanced residential amenity and the wider visual amenity of the locality and offering visual improvements to the at present despoiled appearance of the site.
An outline application is currently being considered by North Warwickshire Borough Council.
