Town council says what Wisbech needs more of is executive style housing

WHAT’S needed in Wisbech is larger homes says the town council which is backing plans for five homes – two of them with up to seven bedrooms- on North Brink.

Nicholas Tysterman has the application before Fenland District Council Planning Committee next Wednesday with an officers’ recommendation to approve them.

The site is next to agricultural land and adjoining the existing development area boundary south west of 120 North Brink.

The scheme has been drawn up by Peter Humphrey Associates and includes two three-storey four/seven bedroom houses, one three-storey five/six bedroom homes, and two three-storey five bedroom homes. There’s also a wildlife pond planned next to one of the homes.

Only one objection has been raised claiming the need in Wisbech is for affordable homes than executive housing.

Access to the site will be from North Brink ad via a share access and planners believe the quality of the scheme “is considered to outweigh any concerns regarding a change in the pattern of development”.

A report to councillors from their officers says the designs “are considered of high quality and would enhance the character of this quite prominent site on the edge of Wisbech”.
