Councillor says homes plan is ‘out of character’

Written on August 5, 2021

A private developer has applied to build the three detached homes on a one-acre site off Barrack Lane, Lilleshall.

A statement by the architects says the irregular design “celebrates local heritage and cultural history” and is inspired by nearby features like the lime kilns and former canal.

Lilleshall Parish Council has objected, calling it “not sympathetic” to the village’s traditional style, while Telford & Wrekin councillor Andrew Eade says it does not pass the “exceptional quality or innovative design” test that would allow such homes to be built in the countryside. The authority will decide on the application at a later date.
