Allison Homes submits planning application for 650 homes and Country Park in Stamford

Updated: Mar 8, 2022

Allison Homes has submitted a planning application to build 650 homes on land off Old Great North Road in Stamford.

The site, referred to as Monarch Park, forms the western part of the ‘Stamford North’ sustainable urban extension. The extension is expected to deliver new homes, infrastructure, and facilities to support the growth and prosperity of Stamford over the coming decades.

Monarch Park will feature up to 650 homes, from smaller one or two-bedroomed apartments to large, five-bedroomed family homes. Construction is expected to be completed in phases and will include a country park of over 30ha for the use of both residents and the wider community. The application also includes a ‘local centre’ that will offer space for vital services such as shops, health facilities, or other commercial enterprises, alongside a community space and proposed visitor centre for the country park and sports facilities.

David Morris, Land Director for Allison Homes said: “We are excited to have submitted our planning application for Monarch Park. The Allison Homes’ plans offer not just high-quality, much-needed, new homes but an extensive country park which will greatly enhance both the biodiversity and the accessibility of the open space around the development. Our vision offers a modern urban design, built to sustainable construction standards, with a masterplan and material palette that complements Stamford’s unique character.”

Over the past few years, Allison Homes has worked closely with Rutland County Council, South Kesteven District Council and the Burghley House Preservation Trust, in addition to other parties, to develop plans for Stamford North in line with the policy requirements of the adopted South Kesteven Local Plan and emerging supplementary policy guidance.

David continues: “Allison Homes consulted with residents in 2021 to gather comments on the proposal. We have worked positively with all stakeholders to incorporate viable suggestions or mitigate any concerns and are extremely proud of the plans we have now submitted.”
