Green light for further development in the Vale?

Tuesday 20 March 2018

A draft development framework for a vinery site in the Vale has been approved meaning it may get planning permission for residential units in the future.

Up to 35 dwellings could be built on the Cleveleys Vinery which lies off Route du Braye, behind existing residential properties, on the stretch of road between the Lowlands and Braye Road industrial estates.

The Development Framework is for a "potential residential development" which means it is not yet confirmed but the land owners will now be able to go ahead with further plans.

The site comprises an "allocated housing site in the Island Development Plan", together with an "adjoining small area of undesignated (windfall) land" which could all be built on in the future. The now-approved Development Framework provides planning guidance on how the site might be developed by setting out how policies in the Island Development Plan will be applied to the site.

The site could be used for developing between 25 and 35 dwellings, which would include six one bedroom units that have already been constructed to the front of the site, and which are partly visible in the image below.

Some concerns with the proposed residential development were lodged during a four week public consultation into the draft Development Framework, among an overall "limited number of responses".

The main concerns focused on:

  • pedestrian access and safety to the site
  • flooding issues and the suitability of the site for housing development
  • housing density
  • the potential for a cycle path between Saltpans Road and La Route du Braye
  • traffic
  • infrastructure
  • cumulative impact on density and traffic/parking issues considering other planned developments in the area
  • the impact on residential amenity

The DPA has said "all of the matters raised were fully considered" before the Final Framework was approved.
