Details emerge for phase 2 of giant 850 home development in Nuneaton

Permission is needed for the next phase of a house new housing estate in Nuneaton to further progress. Jelson Homes was given the go-ahead to build up to 191 homes on land off Watling Street.

This is phase two of the huge Callendar Farm development, which has already seen outline planning permission granted for up to 850 homes on the site. Jelson is one of a number of different developers involved in the development.

Having been given outline permission for up to 191 homes, the developer is now seeking the go-ahead for reserved matters - which include appearance, layout and scale of its development. It has made an application to the borough council.

Within it are more than a dozen documents that detail everything from house type to bin store locations and parking bays. There are also plans which show the scale of the development as well as a highway visibility splay plan.

It was previously said that access to the large development would be via an A5 signal controlled junction as well as a signal controlled junction on The Longshoot. As part of wider proposals there will be an equipped children's play area, pump track, adult outdoor gym including Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and areas of open space and walking areas.

As part of the wider Callendar Farm plans there is proposed land to provide a primary school totalling 1.2 hectares, indicated towards the east of the development.

The reserved matters application is now being looked at by planning officers at the Town Hall. As part of this, people can view the proposals on the council's website, searching in the planning applications section for reference 040231.

The target decision date for the reserved matters application is July 12.
