First phase of housing scheme in Surrey given the green light

JTP Cranleigh development

Planning has been granted to the first phase of a JTP-designed housing scheme near Cranleigh in Surrey.

The first element (pictured) of the proposed 38ha Knowle Park site will see 67 homes built for property group A2Dominion.

A contractor has yet to be named for the job, with the first phase expected to be finished by mid-2020.

Outline planning permission had been granted in 2017 for 265 homes in the site, with the first phase comprising three- to five-bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments, some of which will be affordable.

Projects JTP has worked on in the past year include Long Marston Airfield Garden Village, near Stratford-upon-Avon, featuring 3,500 new homes and community infrastructure, as well as the redevelopment of former naval base in Lee-on-Solent, near Portsmouth, where 200 homes will be built.
