About Stonewood Homes:
We are a SME home builder based in Castle Combe, Wiltshire specialising in high quality developments in rural, semi-rural and edge of town locations. Our homes are built to a very high standard, are well specified with sustainability measures and running costs being a priority feature. Our homes are, as standard, fitted with air source heat pumps, photovoltaic panels on the roof and EV chargers to every plot. Please use this link to find examples of our current and previous developments.
Planning status of the site:
The site, known as “Land East of Frog Lane” has been allocated for residential development within Policy SSS1a of the Local Plan Part II: Sites and Policies. The allocation requires a minimum of 30 dwellings (including affordable homes) and to be of a design that reflects the local style.
Our initial proposals are for 34 houses and 4 maisonettes. Of the 38 homes, 11 will be affordable homes (being a mix of rented and shared ownership properties) in line with the Council’s planning policy. All of the buildings will be 2 stories, designed in a traditional style and faced with a mix of materials sympathetic to the local vernacular. Home sizes will range from 1 to 4 bedrooms.
Please note that the land on which the allotments site is included with the land we are purchasing from the land owner. We wish to reassure all parties that the allotments will remain and we welcome conversations about transferring the freehold of the land to an appropriate body so as to preserve this resource for the village.
