NEW drone footage has been shared showing the latest work on an upcoming housing development.

Kidderminster Drone has been documenting the progress on work to build 120 homes on a field off Habberley Road in Kidderminster. 

The latest video shows work starting on the foundations of the houses, with access roads previously being created. 

The Stop the Habberley Road Development Group was previously set up to oppose the controversial development and staged two protests at the site, with hundreds objecting to the plans after raising traffic concerns and other issues. 

The properties are being built by Vistry Mercia, part of the national housebuilder Vistry Group, under its Bovis Homes brand.

As part of the planning agreement for Habberley Park, Vistry Mercia has agreed to pay around £370,000 for education and £76,800 for healthcare, as well as providing funding for a range of transport-related projects including £291,532 for highway infrastructure, £225,491 for school transport, and £20,000 for a pedestrian crossing improvement.

The homebuilder will also contribute around £167,500 towards Habberley Valley Local Nature Reserve.

A launch event for the brand-new development is set to be held on June 1.
