Housing Development near Swinston Hill and Lakeland Drive

This is a  scaled back version of the 2011 plan when RMBC wanted to go all the way out to the Butterfly House with 1200 houses, but it has probably sparked more opposition than any other in Dinnington.

It a 240 home housing estate, possibly partly “affordable” possibly not given recent government relaxation of rules.¬†Access for the new owners would partly come from a new access road on Swinston Hill, facilitated by demolition of an existing home.

Approx 80 of the houses would be served by making Wentworth Way into a through road, a contentious decision on a road where parking is already something of a problem.
