Planning homes for the future in Chapel

WITH a substantial number of new homes needing to be built in the area over the next 15 years, Chapel Vision is trying to identify suitable sites.

They want to hear from anyone who owns land in the parish who may be looking to develop it for housing, business or community purposes.

A survey revealed residents would prefer brownfield sites being used, but if not enough are found, green fields would be needed.

The group hopes to consider all the options and prioritise sustainable sites that minimise the impact on local residents and on the countryside.

They have set up a series of meetings for prospective developers to find out about Chapel Vision’s priorities and to discuss their possible plans in confidence.
