PLANS to build more than 90 homes on the edge of Worcester as another phase of a huge urban extension have been revealed.

The plans would see 91 affordable homes built on the former Ketch car boot site next to the A4440 Southern Link Road in Worcester.

Developer Rooftop Housing has also included plans for allotments and community orchards and gardens.

The homes, which would form one part of a huge urban extension, would be built between the busy Broomhall Way and Taylor's Lane next to another Rooftop Housing site and a St Modwen site which was backed by Malvern Hills District Council's planning committee last month.

Rooftop said the buildings will be a mix of one-and-two-bed flats and one-to-four-bed homes and just over 40 per cent of the land would remain as green space.

The homes, like the other developments, would be accessed from Taylor's Lane.

Just last month, Malvern Hills District Council’s planning committee approved plans to build 36 homes on a neighbouring plot between the A4440 and Taylor’s Lane despite fears it would cause problems on the narrow road.

Rooftop's plan would be just one part of a 255-home plan between the A4440 on the edge of the city and Taylor's Lane and several other huge developments which form part of urban extensions to the west and south of Worcester.

The major work also includes a massive £500 million, 2,204-home 'super village between St Peter's and Kempsey and two massive plans in Lower Broadheath near Worcester which total 2,365 homes.

Kempsey Parish Council said it feared the St Modwen homes would become isolated from the rest of the urban extension and said it was disappointed the plans did not seem to connect with other planned surrounding developments. It called the plans "extremely disappointing."

The plans can be viewed via the planning section of Worcester City Council's website.

The application number is 20/00775/FUL.

Consultation ends on November 9.
