PLANS to create 94 homes have been submitted but have sparked objections from residents and a nearby primary school.

Proposals for the houses on land at Monastery Lane, Sutton have been sent to the council by Livv Housing Group.

A design and access statement, drawn up by agents MPSL Planning and Design Limited, said: "The site is broadly triangular in shape, bound to the east by a dismantled railway line and industrial estate further beyond, to the south by an existing railway line and new residential development further beyond, and to the west by Monastery Road.

"The general scale and massing of the development seeks to respond to local context, as such, the development proposes two-storey dwellings across the site,

"The design concentrates on creating successful ‘places’ for people. Building layout and style, hard and soft landscape, highway design and use of materials all work together within the development to create a cohesive overriding character.

"These elements have taken local context into account to ensure that the design will fit harmoniously into its’ surroundings".

It concludes: "The development delivers a high quality, well-balanced residential community, which will offer much needed affordable rent housing.

"It is demonstrated through the application submission that the proposals will enhance the surrounding area, making use of unused brownfield land, whilst according with National and Local Planning Policy".

However, several objections to the plans have been penned.

St Anne's Catholic Primary School is among those who have sent representations to the council against the application.

The school said: "As a school and parish we have concerns over the planned entrance to the site. It is almost directly opposite the main church car park entrance and very close to the entrance of the parish centre car park.

"This is a very congested area during school drop off and pick up times and during times when the church is in use".

A nearby resident expressed "strong" objections to the plans and cited concerns over traffic problems, noise, pollution and smell disturbance, loss of privacy and damage to the natural environment.

A determination deadline on the planning application has been set by the council for September 24.
