Great Stall East - Masterplan capital land

NEV Planning Granted


With the finalisation of the S106 agreement outline planning permission has been granted for 1,550 new homes on land at Great Stall East, just south of the A420 to the east of Swindon. The planning application for the development, which was submitted by Capital Land Strategic Planning, will also deliver a new primary and secondary school, a site for a Park and Ride, as well as a sports hub.

The Capital Land team received a resolution to grant August 2020 and finalised the S106 agreement a year later receiving the grant of planning permission at the end of last month. The team progressed immediately on to the next stage of the planning process working up detailed designs and beginning planning work to discharge conditions since the end of summer last year.

Planning White Paper


Following the announcements in the 2020 Budget the government’s plans for housing and planning have been put forward in their policy paper, Planning for the future.

In order to achieve the ambitious target of 300,000 new homes a year the government have stated that they will bring forward a series of major publications and legislate to deliver lasting change.

In the Spring, the UK government have said they will publish their ambitious Planning White Paper which offers new and inventive solutions to reform the planning system making it work for the coming century.

Within the initial planning for the future policy paper they have said that in order “To achieve this mission, the government will bring forward a series of major publications and legislate to deliver lasting change. This will start with an ambitious Planning White Paper in the Spring to modernise our planning system, ensuring it supports the delivery of homes that local people need and creates more beautiful and greener communities. We will introduce a Building Safety Bill to bring about the biggest change in building safety for a generation and a Renters’ Reform Bill to provide greater stability for those who rent their homes. To ensure that residents in social homes are treated fairly we will publish a Social Housing White Paper. Taken together these will form the bedrock of a housing strategy to be published later in the year, setting out our longer-term plans to deliver the homes this country needs and create a fairer housing market.”
