More new homes are due to be built at the former Cottam Brickworks site alongside the new marina.


De Pol town planners have tabled the latest stage in works for the Cottam Hall site.

A new application includes 21 new homes and also detailed plans for 93 homes which have existing planning permission.

A statement from the planning firm says: “The principle of development proposed by this application has previously been secure through the granting of outline approval.

“The proposal is for the redevelopment of this previously developed site for 114 new dwellings, formed by a reserved matters and full application to ensure that the site is developed comprehensively.

“The reserved matters submission is for 93 dwellings following on from an outline approval on the majority of the site for up to 206 dwellings and a full application for 21 dwellings on the remainder of the site, the majority of which has an extant approval for a marina.”

Cottam Hall as a whole is said to be worth £80million as part of the regeneration of the area.
