Major housing development in Newport takes step forward

Written on August 16, 2021

A major development of 301 houses and a care home has taken another step towards construction, with the submission of detailed plans.

Outline permission for the estate, west of Station Road, Newport, was granted last November, and Bloor Homes Ltd has now applied for full consent.

A design statement by the Tamworth-based company says 60 of the houses will be classed as affordable and a third of the 35-acre site will consist of open space including grassland, a community orchard and play areas.

The site spans the Newport Town Council area and the parishes of Church Aston and Chetwynd Aston & Woodcote. All three bodies will be consulted and Telford and Wrekin Council will make its decision at a later date.

A design statement, submitted by Bloor Homes planning director Maxwell Whitehead, says: “The site is approximately 14.35 hectares and is currently in agricultural use.

“The A518 runs along the southeastern boundary of the site.

“Immediately to the north is a post-1960s estate that was built between Wellington Road and the railway line.
