A developer is asking for residents' views on its proposal to build dozens of additional homes on a popular city estate.

Taylor Wimpey is currently drawing up plans to build 113 new two, three and four bedroom homes at Newton Leys, to the south of Bletchley.

The company originally received planning permission to build 1,650 new homes at Newton Leys, with the final phases due to be completed in 2024.

But due to the "overwhelming popularity" of the community, they are now seeking permission for the extra homes on a parcel of land known as Phase 7B, which lies to the west of Spring Walk.

The development will form a "natural extension" to Spring Walk and complete Phase 7 as a whole, say Taylor Wimpey bosses.

Their proposals include 78 homes available for private sale and 35 affordable properties. Parking, including spaces for visitors, plus an area of open space are included.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Taylor Wimpey will be holding a public consultation for the proposals online, between Monday October 12 and Sunday October 25.

“Anyone who visits our consultation website will be able find out more about our proposals and provide their feedback to help us develop and refine the emerging scheme.”

The consultation website will be live from Monday 12 October.
