Persimmon Homes wants to build 188 homes on the Hadley Quarry site

Nearly 190 homes could be built on part of a quarry site in Telford.

Persimmon Homes West Midlands wants to build the two, three and four-bedroom homes on Hadley Quarry, an 11-acre (4.5 hectare) site that is used by a brick manufacturer.

Telford and Wrekin Council is set to make a decision at a later date.

A statement submitted on behalf of the firm said the quarry had so far "created a barrier to the expansion of Hadley".

It added the area had seen rapid expansion since Telford was established as a new town and the quarry marked a "logical opportunity" to create new housing, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.
