Developer thanked for noting concerns
Permission for a 81-home development in Donington has been granted after changes to the plan were made.
Planning committee chairman Coun Roger Gambba_Jones told councillors that he was impressed how the developer - Ashwood Homes - can listened to councillors’ concerns and addressed them in their re-application.
The homes, on land at Town Dam Lane, also carries a £407,026 section 106 contribution for education facilities and £35,964 towards health facilities.
The original affordable housing provision was also cut to accommodate planning requirements.
Coun Gambba-Jones said: “I would like to thank the developer for their responsible attitude towards making changes.
The application was unanimously approved for the mixed development of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, many with private driveways and garaging.
