Plans for two separate housing developments have been given the go-ahead by Doncaster Council.

An application by Langtree Group Plc for 28 properties at Doncaster Industry Park, Watch House Lane, in Bentley was granted unanimously by councillors, although there was concern by Councillor Bill Mordue (pictured) about traffic.

He said: “I’m concerned about the amount of traffic which goes down there, it’s at saturation point. This scheme is going to make it worse.”

A further application by Duchy Homes Ltd for nine detached homes on 0.96ha of land following the demolition of existing dwellings at 29 Park Drive in Sprotbrough was also granted permission.

The matter received 40 letters of objection with concerns about traffic and car parking.

Parish councillor Ray Bartlett urged members to reject the plans, saying: “It is a major development. These properties represent severe over development, are out of character and will result in excess traffic on an inadequate highway.”

Suzanne Phillipson, speaking on behalf of Duchy Homes Ltd, assured the council that the homes would be of a high quality and that there would be no privacy issues.
