Plans have been unveiled for a six-acre derelict site in Gloucester.

Linden Homes want to build 279 homes, a health centre, a cafe/restaurant and offices on the former Gloucestershire College site in Greyfriars.

The development proposal is a partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

An HCA spokesman said the positive feedback it had received during the consultation phase demonstrated this was an important local project.

The Gloucester Heritage Urban Regeneration Company said the rundown area could soon become a showcase regeneration for the city.

The spokesman added: "We have worked hard with both the HCA and Linden Homes to secure a development reflecting the area's heritage within the city whilst providing Gloucester with much-needed city centre homes and a vibrant new community."
