Members of the Isle of Wight Council's planning committee meet later today (Tuesday), to consider proposals including for Northwood, Shalfleet and Whippingham.

In Shalfleet, 70 properties could be built on a greenfield site, if the plans are approved, of which 27 would be designated 'affordable'.

It would be an extension of Burt Close but the expansion plan has generated more than 90 objections.

Complainants have cited fears about the urbanisation of Shalfleet and the scheme's potential impact on protected woodland.

County Hall's planning officers are recommending the Shalfleet scheme's approval, subject to 24 conditions.

Also on the agenda is a proposal for more than a hundred homes on land on the outskirts of Cowes, Northwood and Gurnard.

An 11-hectare green space would also be designated as a public green space.

The new builds would be accessed from Place Road and Cordelia Avenue.

A new distribution warehouse, at the Whippingham technology park, is the third plan being considered tonight.

Chartwood Holdings Pension Scheme is seeking outline permission.

The green light for the scheme is being recommended by planning officers, with conditions.

Members of the planning committee will meet at 4pm, in the Council Chamber, at County Hall, where they will make their final decisions.
