Vistry Group are preparing plans for new housing at Higher Comeytrowe Farm, adjoining Orchard Grove, and part of the Comeytrowe urban extension area allocated by the council for new housing.

The proposals are for up to 400 new homes, including around 100 affordable homes, with extensive new public open space, recreation areas, walking routes, play spaces and woodland. Vehicle access would be through Orchard Grove and onto the new spine road.

In line with local and national priorities, the new homes would champion climate change, good design, biodiversity and placemaking. The application will consider flooding, active travel and phosphate management. All new homes will be gas-free, using renewable energy technologies and high standards of design to reduce carbon emissions and waste.
