A DEVELOPER has submitted plans that would see 25 new homes built near Dursley.

Proposals were submitted to Stroud District Council on January 29 by a developer, being represented by an agent.

The plans relate to land near Tilsdown in Cam.

The application form states that the last use of the site was part of a garden in 2010.

The land that the application relates to is opposite The Drive.

According to the application on Stroud District Council’s website the dwellings built would consist of a collection of houses, flats, affordable housing and starter homes.

Residents have already had their say on the plans online, with concerns raised over access issues on the ‘already busy’ Tilsdown.

Stroud District Council Leader Doina Cornell posted on Facebook stating hat they had requested that a large portion of the houses be ‘affordable’.

The agent that submitted the application is Robert Hitchins Ltd, the Gazette has made contact with them.

The article online was greeted with comments from residents who believe that the area does not need any more houses.

“I find this sad that they want more houses on top of what we have being built at the moment, I think there needs to be a new primary and secondary school,” one Facebook user said.

“We don’t need more houses we need more places that can offer employment to the area,” another said.
