Council's rejection of new Tiddington homes upheld
STRATFORD District Council’s decision to reject plans for 100 homes in Tiddington has been upheld.
The Rosconn Group applied to build the homes on both sides of Knights Lane but the proposals were turned down by Stratford District Council’s planning committee in March last year.
Amid concerns the scheme could lead to Tiddington merging into Stratford and significantly increase traffic levels on local roads, the council’s planning rejected the plans.
Despite a re-submitted plan from the developers a further rejection from the council was registered in August thus leading to an appeal from the developers.
This week however, government planning inspector George Baird backed the council’s original rejection.
“In either of the proposed housing schemes there would be little or no appreciation of a distinction between Stratford and Tiddington,” he said
