New Lawn housing

Our redevelopment proposal for eco-housing at The New Lawn.

The new housing proposal is our exciting redevelopment of The New Lawn – if Forest Green Rovers FC receive consent to relocate to a new stadium at Junction 13, as part of the Eco Park proposals.

Our vision is for high quality, low carbon sustainable homes, in both the design and construction.

The focus on sustainability is a core principle and will be clear throughout the proposal. This encompasses environmental elements such as the building fabric, site design and energy use and consumption, as well as wider social aspects including the use of open space, affordable homes and connectivity to the local area.

We want the site to be well connected through the provision of electric vehicle charging points – for both bikes and cars – as well as supporting and building on public transport links.

We believe housing to be an appropriate use of the site, should redevelopment occur. The site sits within the settlement boundary of Nailsworth, has a low risk of flooding (Flood Zone 1), and would be on brownfield land and in keeping with the local character of the area.

The proposal would allow the construction of much needed homes in the District in a suitable location, including a healthy proportion of in demand, affordable housing.

Outline Application Submitted – 9 April 2018

Further to the previous outline application at The New Lawn submitted last year, Ecotricity have now submitted a revised application to Stroud District Council. This application removes the detail of indicative masterplan which previously showed 95 homes. The density, mix and variety of homes will be detailed later at the Reserved Matters stage should the Outline application be consented.

A decision is expected later in the year following a decision on Outline plans at Junction 13 of the M5 – known as Eco Park.

You can download the application below, and it’s also available on the Council’s Planning webpage.
