Plans to build five more detached houses in the grounds of the former Carpenters Arms pub in Wick have been submitted to South Gloucestershire Council.
Last July we reported that developer Chewton Keynsham Ltd had been granted permission to build three four-bedroom houses next to the ‘Carps’ and to turn the boarded-up pub into a three-bed house with a garden and parking at the rear, retaining a small part for a micro-pub with a one-bedroom staff flat.
Locals had concerns that a pub on such a small scale would not be economically viable. Other concerns were raised over parking, road safety, the height of the houses and the lack of greenery but the plans were approved.
Now the developer has put in a planning application for “phase 2” of the redevelopment at Church Road, involving a further five houses on land at the rear of the site with access via the phase 1 site currently under construction.
Two detached three-bed houses and three detached four-bed houses are proposed and the developer says there will be “ample parking” and the development will have no detrimental impact on neighbours.
The planning reference is P21/00712/F.
