Land North of
Southill Road, Broom

Public Consultation

Greenvolt Development (GVD) in partnership with The Guinness Partnership is preparing a Planning Application for
50 new Affordable Homes at Land North of Southill Road, Broom.

The purpose of this website is to set out our draft plans for the development of the site and to invite comments on how
the proposals could be shaped to reflect the views and needs of local people.

Proposed Site Plan

The Development Proposals

The proposed development for up to 50 affordable dwellings, will incorporate the following:

  •  A mix of affordable types and tenures, but predominantly shared ownership two and three-bedroom properties (60%) reflecting the findings of a local housing needs survey.
  • Significant landscaping is proposed around the site to screen the site from the surroundings and Public Open Space to serve the development and wider community and incorporating Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems to mitigate flood risk.
  • The proposed properties will each have a rear private garden, which will provide amenity for future occupants and ensure that there is appropriate separation with the existing properties on Southill Road and Bancroft Avenue.
  • Vehicular and pedestrian access is proposed from Southill Road in the south-western corner of the site.
  • Appropriate on-plot parking is provided, totalling 96 off-street car parking spaces (on average 2.4 spaces per property) to ensure parking does not overspill onto the surrounding roads and streets.
  • The proposals comprise flats, detached and semi-detached Affordable Homes. 

The proposed site plan highlights how the site is proposed to be developed.
