Blackwell draft planning and development brief
The outcome of the consultation was reported to the Place Scrutiny Committee on 12 September 2017.
See our Democracy section for more details.
The Council decided that sites at Blackwell could be developed for higher-end and executive housing.
We carried out and initial consultation on the development of a Planning and Development brief in 2015.
In 2015 the Council consulted with Blackwell residents. We proposed to allocate four sites for top-end executive housing.
The sites are located at the former Blackwell Grange Golf Course.
Since then we have worked with the Blackwell Neighbourhood Forum to develop a Planning and Development Brief for the site. This is known as He4.
Officers are working on similar proposals for the remaining land. A draft Planning and Development Brief for the Council owned Sites He 1, He1 a, and He 3 was prepared.
As part of the Brief a Landscape & Restoration Plan for the parkland areas was proposed, worked up by TGP Landscape Architects with Historic England. This is to restore the Parkland and open up the land for the public.
