Nearly 100 homes could be built near Gloucester

An eco-friendly estate of nearly 100 homes could be built on land just south of Gloucester. 

It is small-fry compared to the proposals for the site to next door – where a 1,750 home would make up part of the Hunts Grove development. 

But if it goes ahead the scheme, by Custom Land Ltd, would add to the fast-growing residential area and would be built at Naas Lane, Quedgeley.

Planners at Gloucester City Council are due to meet next week to decide whether to grant outline planning permission for the development, which would include 24 houses earmarked as “affordable”, open spaces and a play area. 

According to a design and access statement for the Birmingham-based developer the homes would be “designed to reduce carbon, save energy, conserve water and enhance biodiversity”. 

The plans are recommended for approval and go before the planning committee on Tuesday, August 4.
