Plans approved for 74 new homes at Hednesford

Bellway is set to start construction work on a development of 74 new homes in Hednesford, after receiving detailed planning permission from Cannock Chase District Council at a planning committee meeting last month.

The Bellway development, to be known as Green Oaks, is located within a wider new neighbourhood off Pye Green Road, which is delivering approximately 900 homes, alongside a primary school, care home and local centre.

Bellway West Midlands’ detailed application for 74 homes, to be built on six acres of land within the wider 160-acre site, situated to the east of land allocated for allotments, and next to the new Poppyfield Primary Academy, which opened in September 2019 as part of the wider development.

Green Oaks will provide a mix of two to four-bedroom properties, including 59 houses which will be sold privately, and 15 homes provided as affordable housing and made available for local people through shared ownership or rent.

The development will be built in four clusters, with 13 of the homes situated to the north of Littleton Lodge care home, which opened in May 2021.

Ben Wright, Managing Director of Bellway West Midlands, said: “We are pleased that the local authority has approved our plans to build 74 homes here at Green Oaks, in an area where demand for both private and affordable housing is high.

“We are delivering a mix of one to four-bedroom homes here which, once completed, will provide prospective housebuyers in this area with a selection of properties to choose from, to suit a range of different needs and budgets.

“Bellway West Midlands is delivering these properties as part of what is a significant scheme in Hednesford to deliver hundreds of new homes, helping to contribute towards the local authority’s overall vision for the future of housing in this area.

“This development, as part of the wider scheme, will be extremely well served by local facilities including Poppyfield Primary Academy, which opened in September 2019, which means this is likely to be a popular place to live for families with young children.

“We look forward to welcoming the first customers on site to what will be a valuable and seamless addition to this part of Hednesford.”

Alongside building the new homes, Bellway is making a substantial financial investment in local infrastructure through the planning agreement, including contributions of almost £500,000 towards additional places at Poppyfield Primary Academy, £15,000 for a bus shelter that will serve the development, and an additional £7,500 towards improved cycle storage facilities at Hednesford Railway Station.

The first homes at Green Oaks have been released for sale from Bellway’s Baswich Grange development in Stafford, with a sales office due to open on site in August.
