Video: Residents have their say on homes in Yapton

Waiting for Video...

SMALLER houses should be built in Yapton.

The need for one and two-bedroom new properties is among the policies which residents have included in the draft version of their land-use blueprint.

They have also called for one in four of new dwellings to be built to Lifetime homes standards to make them suitable for older people as well as those who are younger.

The initial version of the neighbourhood plan sets aside five sites where housing could be built.

They are: north of Yapton CE Primary School (20 homes), Cinders Lane (30 homes), Main Road/Drove Lane (12 homes), Maypole Field (20 homes) and Old Coal Yard (four homes).

It also calls for faster broadband for the village and the retention of community facilities among its 64 pages.
