Location

The site lies to the north west of Telford, off Redhill Way.

Development proposals

The former clay pit was reclaimed by LIH and serviced for residential development.

The development comprises up to 350 homes and an Ecology Park making provision for a population of Great Crested Newts. The scheme also delivered housing on site and makes substantial contributions to local community initiatives.

Project status

A reserved matters approval for the Ecology Park was granted in mid 2006. Construction of the Ecology Park has been completed successfully and the Great Crested Newts have been released into the new habitat.

In 2008 Lands Improvement let a £4million earthworks and infrastructure contract to prepare the ground and service the new development including a new roundabout on Redhill Way capping off 12 mineshafts and creation of development profile. This work was completed in early 2009 .

Following grant of planning consent “ready to build” parcels have been sold to Taylor Wimpey who have completed 231 new homes establishing a new community in the area.

Remaining land with fantastic views and outline planning consent for 119 homes on 8 acres is available for sale.
