A PLAN to build 30 homes on green space in a village has been put forward.

The homes would be built on land at Old Hills in Callow End near Worcester under plans by developer Terra.

Twelve of the homes would be affordable according to the proposals submitted to Malvern Hills District Council.

The homes would be accessed via Upton Road.

James O’Shea, managing director of Terra, said the homes would help contribute towards the need for affordable housing across the Malvern Hills district.

“We are excited about the opportunity to create a quality family-orientated niche development in this sought-after village location,” he said.

“In the parish of Powick, where Callow End is located, local data indicates a demand for at least 21 affordable homes.

“Our proposals are for 12 of the 30 plots planned for this site to be designated as affordable, together with additional two- and three-bedroom homes which could be ideal for first time buyers.

“Delivering this scheme will add value to the immediate area, with 30 high-quality new homes designed around extensive landscaping and public open space.

“We look forward to working alongside officers, councillors and consultees while the application is being considered.”

The latest housing plans for Callow End follow the submission of an application which would see an eyesore manor house in the village demolished to make for new homes and bungalows.

Lockley Homes has put forward proposals that would see the now dilapidated Victorian-era Wheatfield Court in Callow End near Worcester demolished and replaced with a mix of three-and-four-bed homes and bungalows.

The building off the village’s Upton Road was destroyed by a huge fire in 2004 – having been converted into flats – leaving its then residents homeless and the building gutted.

Some concerns have been raised about the new entrance to the homes off the busy Upton Road which would also be used to access the nearby Terra homes.

The plans can be viewed via the planning section of Malvern Hills District Council’s website.

The application number is 21/01719/OUT and public consultation ends on October 29.
