Plan to replace Telford garage with 14 homes

Telford | News | Published:

A Telford garage could be demolished and replaced with homes, after plans were put forward.

An application has been made to Telford & Wrekin Council's planning department to replace Peter Morris Cars in Wellington.

The garage, on Wrekin Road, on the edge of the Wellington Conservation Area, would be demolished to make way for the development.

The proposal is in outline only at this stage and is comprised of a residential development of up to 14 houses. An indicative scheme has been submitted with the proposals, giving a general outline of how the site could look.

In a design and access statement, submitted along with the plans, it says that the street is a key access into the town and any development would seek to make the most of Wellington's historic character.

It says: "The indicative scheme that has been developed shows a contemporary scheme that seeks to add a high quality development that is of its time rather than a weak pastiche of historic design styles. In doing so it allows the progression of the town over time to be demonstrated, which is the natural development of most historic streets and centres.

"The proposals should look to enhance the conservation area by providing a solution that is worthy of its setting and respectful of its neighbours and the indicative scheme submitted would successfully address this issue."

The 14 houses would be a mix of two and three bedroom properties built into a mews style. All properties have on site car parking and private garden spaces through raised terraces.

It is suggested to have one space per property, with an extra four visitors spaces.


Plans were put forward on Wednesday, and will be decided by the council at a later date.

Jean Marie Morris, who was a senior director of Peter Morris Cars Ltd for more than 20 years died in 2015 at the age of 88.

The garage sponsors the county bowls Senior Citizens League.
