A new planning application seeks permission to build five houses on an empty plot of land in Tibshelf.

The application is for land on the village’s High Street, formerly number 45, at the junction with Station Road.

The application, submitted to Bolsover District Council, seeks permission to build a terrace of three two-bed houses and two detached four-bed houses at the site, along with off-street parking.

A document attached to the application explains: “The proposal consists of the construction of five houses on site in total.

“The scheme would result in the development of a visually prominent piece of vacant land providing a townscape link between the former Wheatsheaf Public House and No. 43 High Street,

“The new dwellings would be set back slightly from High Street (as are the properties opposite) in a staggered formation.

“They would be close enough to the highway to provide a continuation of built form to visually connect the properties to the north and south of the site.”

The site has previously been subject to a number of planning applications, including one to build two three-bedrooms houses in 2015.

The application was granted conditionally in January 2016.
