A PROPOSAL for a major housing development in Stourport is set to go before the council's planning committee. 

The plans, submitted by Taylor Wimpey, could see up to 94 homes and a care home built at the former Parsons Chain factory site off Worcester Road. 

The design and access statement for the proposal says: "The redevelopment of under-utilised brownfield land at sustainable locations is a key government objective for delivering new homes. 

"The change of land use to residential or social care does not materially harm the setting of the adjacent Listed Building, business uses or woodland area.

"The effect of the proposed development on the existing highways and service infrastructure has been fully investigated and evaluated. No Excessive strain or pressures on either have come to light and as a result, problems are not anticipated.

"Provision has been made within the scheme for the Care Home land to be seamlessly integrated in the future when it comes forward for development. 

"The delivery of these homes will contribute additional homes to the open market and affordable housing stock in this area and new residents will assist in boosting the local community and economy."

The plan will be put to a vote at a meeting of Wyre Forest District Council's planning committee this evening (Tuesday, April 19).
