Views needed on 200-home plan for Bramley
BRAMLEY residents are being encouraged to share their views about plans to build 200 new homes in the area.
The consultation period for the borough council's draft Local Plan, which identifies where new homes will be built up to 2029, ends next Friday.
At an extraordinary meeting held by Bramley Parish Council, in Bramley Village Hall, Councillor Tony Durrant said: “The more responses that are submitted from the community, the more influence they may have over the final decision.”
Bramley Neighbourhood Development Plan group, made up of local residents, will make a recommendation to the borough about where the homes could go.
Forty per cent will be affordable –- enough to cater for the 72 Bramley residents in need of affordable homes and 13 per cent will be social housing.
After hearing from residents’ concerned over how the Bramley infrastructure would cope with more development, Cllr Durrant said the council has taken a “very strong stance” on infrastructure.
He said that money contributed by developers already building in the area had been used for a number of projects, including the expansion of Bramley Church of England Primary School.
