UP to 35 new homes could be built off in Pershore, if plans submitted to the council get the go-ahead.

Crown House Developments wants to build more homes opposite the existing new-builds in Wyre Road.

It has earmarked fields across the road from Goldfinch Rise and builders merchant Travis Perkins.

Outline plans submitted to Wychavon District Council suggest there would be a mix of 21 open market homes and 14 affordable houses.

“Scale and density of any proposed development must align with the density of its surroundings,” it says. “This is particularly significant when proposing residential developments in areas such as this.

“The surrounding residential area consists of detached, semi-detached and terraced two-storey dwellings of varying sizes.

“As designers it is our aim to gain approval for a residential development that meets the aspirations of our client to deliver high quality homes which will make a positive contribution to the town of Pershore.

“The layout therefore proposes a mix of detached and semi-detached two-storey dwellings.

“The proposed dwellings have parking spaces allocated meeting the parking requirements.

“All four-bed dwellings also have single garages in addition to their parking spaces.”

In a planning statement submitted to the council, the developer says the site is a 20-minute walk or a four-minute drive from Pershore high street - and that there are bus links to Evesham, Worcester and Stratford nearby.

“Pershore Train station is also only a 19-minute walk or three-minute drive to the north.”

It says the site is not within a conservation area or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

But the developer says it wants to retain the site’s “mature hedgerows and tree groups” wherever possible.

The plans also mention retaining and improving the existing public right of way that runs through the site.

The proposed access road to the site “has been positioned off Wyre Road in between the two access points of the residential development opposite to avoid conflict with traffic entering and exiting the sites,” according to the plans.
