A PLAN to build up to 95 homes on a fire service training centre site has been deferred for a second time in a matter of months.
Outline plans to build two, three and four-bedroom houses off Hitchin Road, Stevenage, were due to be discussed by Stevenage Borough Council’s planning committee on Tuesday but the item was deferred without members commenting.
Council planning officer Dave Rusling said Hertfordshire County Council – which owns the land currently used as fire and rescue training centre – had reviewed figures relating to the traffic flow and had discovered inaccuracies in the data.
It follows the committee’s decision to defer the item from last month’s meeting, due to a lack of information about issues including noise and traffic pollution, and secondary school spaces provision.
The 2.68-hectare site is situated next to The John Henry Newman School.
