Burcot Garden Centre permission for 11 houses

A planning application has gone to Bromsgrove District Council to build 11 houses on the site of Burcot Garden Centre.

The proposal comprises eight properties. Five with three bedrooms and three with four bedrooms. There would be three for under market value.

There will also be 32 car parking spaces included in the development. Along with associated landscaping, bin storage and a new access from Pikes Pool Lane.

In the application it is claimed the redevelopment would provide a benefit to the green belt. There would be less hard-standing and a greater green space.

It added the removal of structures, such as sheds and storage containers would also improve the appearance.

The garden centre has been on the site for 11 years and has 23 members of staff.Burcot Garden Centre owner Ian Gow said planning permission would not mean the end of the centre.

He said: “we’re exploring the options available and will look at the situation.”

Under the council’s planning regulations developments have to begin within three years.
