Originally, applicant Manor Oak Homes had not included any bungalows in its plans. However, following the consultation process, they included a number of one-storey properties.
Following the approval of the homes, the 3.4acre plot of land was put up for sale.
The buyers will not only have to pay the £1.5m price tag for the site, but a number of community funds will need to be paid.
This will include a habitat management contribution of £321.22 per dwelling and community infrastructure levy (CIL) costs, which are currently £193.44 per sqm.
