Developers appeal on Cheltenham homes decision

Developers are appealing against a decision to refuse planning permission for 650 new homes in Leckhampton in Gloucestershire.

Bovis Homes and Miller Homes said they were “very disappointed” that Cheltenham Borough Council’s planning committee went against recommendations to approve the application, which also included a primary school, public space, land for a GP surgery and shops.

A joint statement said: “The council itself has consistently identified this site for housing through the Joint Core Strategy process and it remains the draft strategic allocation at this very advanced stage. Indeed, the site forms part of the trajectory for housing delivery in the borough over the next five years and beyond.”

Bovis Homes and Miller Homes said they were preparing to submit the appeal.
