Outline planning permission has been granted to a controversial four-home development in Wilmington.

The proposed development, on land at Gibbons Farm, and the construction of a new access and estate road was recently approved by district planners.

Applicant Marton Developments said the development will provide three affordable homes and one open market property, each provided with two parking spaces and a private garden.

The development will be served by a new entrance ‘central to the site’s two existing accesses’.

This is in the form of a single drive which will ‘loop around’ the rear of the new housing before ‘terminating’ in the form of a dedicated turning area.

The application added: “The suggested layout comprises a terrace of four dwellings, expected to consist of a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses.”

The applicant originally sought permission for nine, and then six, homes before it was amended to four dwellings.

The plans attracted 24 letters of objections and three of support.
