Plan for 35 homes at The Crescent in Ketton has been approved
A ‘major’ housing scheme of 35 homes has been approved in Ketton.
Rutland County Council has approved the scheme at The Crescent, which previously contained abandoned bungalows and a laboratory. They have just been demolished as part of the project.
The application is for a mixture of one-to-five-bedroomed ‘high quality’ properties, including ten affordable homes, plus parking and open spaces.
The applicant, the Besson Wright Partnership, first submitted its proposals three years ago.
Rutland County Council and Ketton Parish Council had no objection to their scheme.
Just before Christmas, the developer and the county council signed a Section 106 agreement to deliver ten ‘affordable’ homes.
A council report recommending approval, said the scheme would be in accordance with its development plan.
It would also not harm the character of the conservation area and its setting.
The developer was unavailable for comment.
