Detailed proposals for 212 homes on the former paper mill site in Sudbrook received the support of Monmouthshire County Council's Planning Committee earlier this week. The proposals were submitted following the site's promotion and subsequent allocation for housing in Monmouthshire's Local Development Plan.
Despite the costs and difficulties of redeveloping this derelict brownfield site, the scheme will deliver 10% of homes in affordable tenures, access improvements and a network of public open spaces and biodiversity enhancements.
Tim Booth, Senior Planning Manager at Harrow Estates said: "We have spent a considerable amount of time working with the Council's officers to prepare a scheme that meets the Council's LDP policy objectives and is commercially viable. We're delighted to have achieved this and secured the support of the Planning Committee."
