A decision on whether 400 homes could be built on land near to Nuneaton’s largest tip will be made in the New Year.
New plans have been submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth Council to build a mini housing estate on land off Tuttle Hill.
A target decision date of February 14, 2020 has been set for the plans, which are the second to be submitted.
It was in May last year that proposals were first sent to the Town Hall, but they did not ever get to the stage where they were debated.
This followed a public consultation in November 2017, when plans for a local centre which would include uses such as a ‘canalside’ pub, doctors surgery, shops, a coffee shop and small hotel were on the table.
However, the latest proposals are simply for up to 400 homes to be built, with two access points off Tuttle Hill, landscaping, open space and two new bridges over the Coventry Canal.
What the plans show
The homes will be split into phases and be built to the right of the entrance to the tip.
It includes the current building, used as offices, at the main entrance.
There are new bridges over the canal and an access point at the side of the new development.
What happens next?
Residents can look at the plans and make comments during public consultation, which will run until December 10.
They can be viewed on the council’s website, searching for planning application number 035595.
Once the public consultation is over, any comments will be reviewed before the target decision date in the middle of February.
It is likely that the plans will be debated by the Town Hall’s planning applications committee.
