Planning application: housing in Overton Road, Ifton Heath, St Martins
Shropshire Council’s housing company Cornovii Developments Limited plans in the coming weeks to submit a planning application to build new homes on the former Ifton Heath Primary School site at Overton Road, Ifton Heath, St Martins.
The former school site will be transformed to accommodate 40 new homes: a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, and 1 and 2 bedroom bungalows. 25 homes will be sold on the open market and 15 new affordable homes delivered, a mix of affordable rent and shared ownership properties. Work is expected to start early 2021 at the Overton Road site, with the first homes ready in Autumn 2021.
Robert Macey, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for housing and strategic planning, said:-
‘This is great news for Shropshire, as it will deliver much-needed new accommodation in the village of Ifton Heath. The designs that have been created will provide top quality sustainable homes that the community can be proud of.”
Mark Barrow, Shropshire Council’s executive director of place, said:-
“This will significantly contribute to the council’s overall house building programme to build over 1,000 new homes in Shropshire by 2025; as well as supporting local contractors and supply chains during a difficult time for the industry and wider economy.”
