Plans put forward for 2,000 Worcestershire houses

Plans for more than 2,000 houses, a hotel and a school to the south of Worcester city have been put forward.

The proposals include accommodation for elderly people, retail plans and sport, leisure and health facilities.

They would affect the St Peter's, Norton and Kempsey areas. Formal consultation has started.

Identical outline planning applications have been sent to Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council.

Malvern Hills District Council said the majority of the application site was within its administrative area, but applications had been submitted to all three authorities because the site "crosses the three districts".

The period to submit responses on the application, which began on Monday, has been extended from three to five weeks.

Plans for allotments and orchards were also among the proposals.
