A DETAILED application has been submitted for 145 homes in Little Sutton.

The move by Redrow follows an outline application in May for 2,000 homes at the site, which would be called ‘Brooklands’.

At that stage, petitioners gathered more than 3,000 signatures opposing the proposed development on land south of Ledsham Road, which they gave to the council.

Redrow has now submitted its first phase detailed planning application for 145 houses, new public open space and new access streets on part of the site. It would form the gateway to the whole development from Ledsham Road, near its junction with Wetherby Way, and include the conversion of Sutton New Hall Farm.

Like the outline application, it will have a 16-week determination period.

Graham Phipp, of Ledsham and Manor Action Group (L&MAG), which opposes the plans, said: “We in L&MAG are currently in the process of writing our objection submission, and will submit it once we have been officially notified through the public notices.

“We are also in the process of writing a response to the council’s Local Plan Preferred Policy Directions paper.”
