A total of 95 new homes proposed for Broughton have been knocked back.Advertisement
Gladman Homes wanted to build on land off the bypass – James Towers Way – with a new development for the village.
But councillors voted against the plans with council officers saying the new homes would ‘result in an unplanned and inappropriate expansion of a rural village’.
Broughton Parish Council hailed the refusal as evidence of their Neighbourhood Plan in action.
Chairwoman Pat Hastings said: “We are delighted that our hard work has been rewarded. This is a small victory for our Neighbourhood Plan.
“We are not against development, one of the sites allocated in the neighbourhood pla Park House is now ready for development.
“The number of homes in Broughton will more than double so we are doing our bit for helping the number of homes being built in the city.”
It is not yet known whether Gladman Homes will appeal against the decision by the city council’s planning committee.
