Planning permission applied for 85 houses on Weston Road

PowerPoint PresentationRichborough homes have submitted an outline planning application to build 85 houses on a field between Aston and Weston. This is now our key opportunity as residents and supporters of the villages to express our views to the planning authority. Please show your support by writing or emailing your views to the South Derbyshire District Planning Authority.

You must ensure you use your own words (remember it doesn’t need to be formal or legal speak, just your views in your words). Please also ensure you stick to the relevant facts related to planning.

Contact details are in the picture below and more guidance and background information can be found using the link below.


The council’s target date for a decision is 6th September.

What should I do?
It is vital that as many residents of Weston & Aston as possible should write or e-mail to oppose this development. Objections should cover two main points:
1. The site identified as S0062 should not be included as a suitable housing site in Part 2 of the South Derbyshire Local Plan.
2. Any planning application by Richborough Estates for development of the site should be rejected.
