Re-Development Of Former MOD Site Approved

Posted on July 12, 2019

The redevelopment of a former Ministry of Defence site in Combe Down with 681 homes and a new primary school is set to be completed in 2026.

Curo now has planning permission for the fourth and final phase of Mulberry Park, which details how the last 158 properties will be designed and distributed.

The former buildings at Foxhill MoD were demolished in 2014 and outline planning permission for the site between Combe Down and Foxhill was granted in 2015.

So far 178 houses have been built, and all but 10 are occupied. Thirty per cent of the properties will be affordable.

Following a judicial review, Curo is no longer planning to demolish homes in neighbouring Foxhill and will instead work with residents to refurbish the properties.

A separate application is due to be submitted this month to detail the landscaping proposals for the public open space and the woodland walk.
