Outline conditional planning approval was granted for Sherford New Community in November 2013 following receipt of a ‘Resolution to Grant’ in 2009 from the SHDC Development Control and PCC Planning Committees.

A number of applications were submitted by the Sherford Consortium in early 2015 to amend approved plans pursuant to the outline approval and provide notification of key activities such as the Glasshouses. All applications have received approval from SHDC and PCC.

Detailed Reserved Matters planning applications were submitted in March 2015 by the three Sherford Consortium members, Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Taylor Wimpey and consent was granted on 27th July 2015 thereby securing the delivery of the first homes and associated infrastructure, open space and playing fields.
