Planning application is lodged for K2A

Barratt Homes has now submitted its planning application to B&NES Council for the second part of the K2 housing scheme. Last month, we reported that the house builder had reached a deal to purchase the land off Charlton Road for an estimated £12.4 million.

Access, both during construction and after completion, will be via a new roundabout on Charlton Road and the scheme also includes a large community open space and play area which will replace the current play park at Holmoak Road.

Public consultation has just opened and the deadline for responses is 13th February. The application reference is 14/00049/FUL.
