Compare Vistry Masterplan with Taylor Wimpey's Down the road
The Taylor Wimpey site plan for Green Lane down the road near St Peter's Hospital looks to be much more generous in terms of green space play areas and it has the attenuation ponds (SuDS) on site rather than pushing the requirement over onto the SANG as in the Ottershaw layout.
The local Plan allocated this site for 173 dwellings but Taylor Wimpy have come in at 149 for a 7 Ha site whereas we are looking at 186 dwellings on a smaller site. TW have also treated the site edges better with a green border against existing dwellings. BRAG will remind the planning committee that Ottershaw East should be treated just as generously.
