Rotherham Council's planning board are set to approve a new development of 70 new homes on former agricultural land off Brecks Lane, Brecks.

At a meeting, the planning board will hear details of the scheme, which has been recommended for approval by officers.

Applicants Kilner Gray Trusts say that 25 per cent of the houses could be affordable housing, which would equate to 17 homes.

Around 90 representations have been received from neighbouring properties, including a number of objections on a range of issues, such as lack of infrastructure, loss of privacy to neighbouring properties, demand for school places, deer sightings on the land and an increase in traffic.

Approval would be subject to the completion of a section 106 legal agreement to secure funding towards education provision, £500 per home for sustainable transport, and a £35,685 contribution to bus stop improvements.
