FINALISED plans to build hundreds more homes on a site off Netherhampton Road have been submitted.

Phase two of Vistry Homes' major 640-home development will see 406 new properties built on the site.

The developer submitted a reserved matters application seeking approval of the size, appearance, landscaping and layout of the next phase on Thursday, February 1.

This phase will see the largest number of homes built, including 14 one-bedroom flats and 90 two-bedroom, 167 three-bedroom, 118 four-bedroom and 17 five-bedroom houses.

The application proposes 147, roughly 36 per cent, of these homes will be classed as affordable with 83 being affordable rent while 64 would have shared ownership.

Three new areas of public open space will be built, including a central open play area, a focal meadow open space and a central movement corridor which connects the north of the site with the south.

All the houses, other than the one-bedroom flats, will have two car-parking spaces. The four-bed houses also have a garage.

A new primary school and local centre will be built within walking distance of all the new properties.

Phase two's site is predominantly undeveloped greenfield land and work will take place between 7am until 7pm Monday through Thursdays, 7am until 6pm on Fridays and 8am until 1pm on Saturdays.

The main access to the site for construction traffic and deliveries will continue to be from Netherhampton Road.

The whole site sits within flood zone one and has a low probability of flooding, according to the developer.

Groundwater will be pumped into lagoons, which must be regularly maintained, while surface water run-off will be stopped by silt fencing. Ditches will be dug to combat run-off if necessary.

Bat and bird boxes will be installed on retained trees and log piles will be provided for the reptile and invertebrate population on the site.

Vistry was granted reserved matters permission to erect 234 homes in October 2022 and construction work started in January, 2023.

The developer was first given the green light for the entire site in February 2020.

Wiltshire Council has until May 2 to make a decision on the approval of reserved matters application (PL/2023/11196).

A statement from Boyer, prepared on behalf of Vistry Homes, read: "This site is acknowledged as providing an important contribution towards Wiltshire Council’s short term housing land supply and meeting the adopted Local Plan housing requirement for Wiltshire."
