Well located prime residential development site.
This prime residential development site has a resolution to grant up to 310 dwellings in an attractive and established high value town in Oadby, Leicestershire. The proposed development will provide a distinctive and high quality place through a well-designed layout and we anticipate a high standard scheme. The development will also include new open space as well as retain and enhance existing woodlands and wetland creating a strong sense of place and a new community, whilst respecting and enhancing the existing character of Oadby. The site is relatively flat and is made up of two parcels separated by Gartree Road to the north, Stoughton Road to the east and existing housing to the south and west. The larger parcel to the south of Gartree Road comprises substantial arable fields. The majority of the section north of Gartree Road is made up of large disused agricultural buildings and hardstanding car parking associated with the commercial units known as Stoughton Grange - a cluster of local businesses including a gastro pub (Cow and Plough). For the avoidance of doubt the commercial units fall outside the site boundary and the sale area. There are two dwellings within the site boundary, west of Stoughton Grange, which are proposed for demolition as well as the farm building within the yellow line parcel plan. The further surrounding locality provides for the University of Leicester sports fields; Shady Lane arboretum, Dam's Spinney, Spire Hospital and Leicestershire Golf Course.
