Cherrybrook Drive, Penkridge
Lone Star are pleased to announce that we have entered into a Promotion Agreement to secure the delivery of housing on 10 acres of land to the north of Penkridge. It is hoped that the scheme will see approximately 100 homes delivered in this large South Staffordshire Village.
The land was deleted from the Green Belt in the 1996 Local Plan and ‘safeguarded’ for future housing. Penkridge is identified as a ‘large’ village in the existing Core Strategy settlement hierarchy and the Council expect 90% of development in the plan period to be directed to the larger villages.
With the national planning policy aim of substantially boosting the supply of housing and the known requirement for South Staffordshire to accept some of the unmet housing need of the Black Country (as related Authority) the land at Cherrybrook Drive should be allocated for development now.This will boost housing supply in a sustainable location on a portion of land which the Council acknowledge through its safeguarded status as being suitable for housing and does not fulfil the five functions of the Green Belt as identified in the NPPF para 80.
