PLANS have been approved for a new housing development in Evesham.

The second stage of plans were given the go ahead for the new 30 homes estate on land off Cheltenham Road in Evesham at Wychavon District Council on Thursday.

Councillors said while they hadn't approved the original application, which was passed at the appeal stage, they would proceed now.

Cllr Reg Jakeman said: "I still don't like it. We shouldn't build here but we are where we are."
