Welcome and thank you for visiting our consultation website which sets out our planning proposals for land south of Roughmoor Lane.


Here you will find some background information about the Church Commissioners for England, our proposal for the development and our timescales for submission of the outline planning application.

An initial consultation ran from 12 January until 26 January 2022, and a virtual presentation was held on Thursday 20 January, a recording of which can be found here.


The Church Commissioners for England and members of its project team now invite you to attend an in person consultation event where we would be pleased to discuss the proposals with you and answer any further questions.


We will continue to accept feedback on the proposal via the online comment form and would be grateful for any final comments by 23 March 2022.

The proposal is being brought forward by The Church Commissioners for England.

The Church Commissioners for England are a registered charity, established to manage the Church of England’s historic assets, and are responsible for providing financial support for the work and mission of the Church of England across the country. 

This support includes contributing to the cost of clergy stipends and pensions, bishop and cathedral costs, and providing support for parishes, especially where there is a particular need. The Commissioners are responsible for managing a property portfolio that includes commercial, rural and residential property, as well as strategic land, forestry and indirect property investments.
