The detailed part relates to 2.19 hectares of land, known as phase three A, which would comprise of 56 new homes, and the outline part relates to 7.54 hectares of land, known as phase three B, which would accommodate about 196 new houses. The phase three development would include a mix of two to 5 bedroomed properties. It would feature a continuous link road from The Balk to West Green by connecting routes through phases one and two. There would also be a link road onto Thurlow Avenue on the Broadmanor estate.
