Plans for Pennyfeathers development are back

By IW Apr 11, 2022

Plans for the 900-house Ryde development Pennyfeathers are back before planners after stalling last year.

Revised details have been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council to complete the major scheme, following an application at the end of 2020 which went quiet.

Pennyfeathers was first put forward to the council in 2014 and gained planning permission in 2017 for the principle of development.

The plans on the outskirts of Ryde include 904 residential units split between open market (587) and affordable housing (317), a school, community centre, commercial buildings, relocation of Westridge Garage, community energy centre, sports building and changing rooms, play areas, and highway improvements.

In planning documents, submitted in 2020, it was envisioned the scheme would take two years to complete.
