A DECISION on whether to build more than 70 homes on the site of a former Victorian hospital has been put off over missing information in the application.

Planning officers at Wychavon District Council have been waiting for important documents about drainage from developer ilke Homes about its plan to build 76 'modular' homes built on the site of the former Evesham Sanatorium off King's Road near to Evesham Marina.

As the information had not been provided, Wychavon District Council's planning committee was unable to make a decision on the plan.

The prefabricated 'modular' homes - which would first be built in a factory and then delivered and put together on-site - would replace the former hospital buildings last used by Green Gables Business Centre.

Bengeworth councillor Martin King said developer ilke Homes had already had between 18 months and two years to prepare the application and provide the information.

"The applicant does not appear to be able to, or has chosen not to, address some significant issues. The application has caused significant concern within the ward and in particular the area of King's Road and Lichfield Avenue."

Dozens of objections were made by neighbours with one saying it would be "complete madness" to build more homes next to King's Road which already suffers from heavy traffic.
