Second stages of controversial plans eventually given the go ahead

First published in News

CONTROVERSIAL plans for 45 new homes on the outskirts of Pershore have finally got past the second stage of proposals.

The development on land at Allesborough Farm, Allesborough Hill in Pershore, was given the go ahead after facing two appeals - both a successful one to secure initial planning approval and an unsuccessful hearing in November when the inspector rejected the appeal for the second stage of plans.

Plans were passed unanimously by planners at Wychavon on Thursday with councillors saying the latest proposals were a great improvement on what they had seen in the past.

Pershore Mayor Cllr Charles Tucker said: "The fact the planning application has come before us today is a clear indication of success. I applaud you for the action you have taken at previous applications. You may recall the previous house types were called Blenheim and Sandringham, that sort of this so I think we have managed to get the developer to be much more aware of our area. This is a much better proposal."
