A planning application for six new homes has been recommended for approval at Rotherham Council’s next planning meeting.

The homes, next to the car park for Greenlands Park, will be three bedroom detached homes.

If approved, the bungalow at 13 Quarry Lane will be demolished to make way for the houses.

Applicant Mr Keir Littlewood states in plans by Clay Architectural Designs Limited: “It is considered that the proposed development will be compatible with the settlements size, character and setting and the surrounding houses are a mix of ages and appearances.

“The landscaping on the site and the building design will enable a high standard of housing environment.

“The new dwellings are sited so that they do not overlook the existing surrounding dwellings.”

Outline permission was granted for the scheme in 2015, and has expired.

The development has been brought to Rotherham Council’s planning board as it has received six objections, including one from Anston Parish Council.

The objections are on the grounds of the over-development of the site, increased traffic, impact on the adjacent North Anston conservation area, and the new dwellings overshadowing neighbouring properties.

One objector wrote: “There is an historic boundary wall on the site. This could be lost as part of the re-development of the site.”

Another added: “The new dwellings could look out of place within the surrounding area which is characterised by properties at a lower density.”

The application, which is recommended for approval by officers, is set to be heard at Rotherham Council’s virtual planning board meeting on April 8.
