Overview

Following the decision to grant outline planning permission for a new community in northern Manydown in July 2020, the councils are considering how their land to the south, on which they also hold a long lease, could be brought forward over the next 30 years to continue to address housing affordability and access to jobs.

Taking a comprehensive approach to planning infrastructure and developing sustainable net zero carbon communities, the councils are working alongside The Society of Merchant Venturers as an adjacent landowner.

Both landowners are putting forward their land for allocation in the updated Local Plan as development sites with homes, employment and key infrastructure.

The land to the south of the councils’ Manydown land is owned by charitable foundation St Monica Trust, which has appointed the Society of Merchant Venturers as its trustee to promote the land for development.
