A PLANNING application has been submitted to build a neighbourhood of more than 100 new homes on the old Midland Industrial Plastics site in Stourport.

Homes builder Taylor Wimpey plans to build 106 houses, ranging from two to four bedrooms, with car parking and new estate roads on land off Steatite Way.

The site is currently vacant after the factory, which was last used as a recycling centre, was demolished.

A spokesman for Taylor Wimpey said: "We are delighted to have submitted our planning application to Wyre Forest District Council.

"As part of our application, we have proposed 106 high-quality new two, three and four-bedroom homes, including affordable housing.

"As part of our pre-application process, we have consulted with local residents and stakeholders to ensure our application benefits the whole community of Stourport-upon-Severn.

"If our application is approved by the council, we will contribute towards improving local facilities and infrastructure, including schools, roads and leisure facilities.”

The proposal describes plans for a neighbourhood with well lit streets, footpaths and cycleways.

The development, comprising 17 two-bed, 40 three-bed and 49 four-bed houses, would be a mixture of homes to buy and rent.
