A planning application has been submitted to build a development of up to 150 new homes in Woolmer Green.

The plans, submitted by Gladman Developments Ltd, would see the "erection of up to 150 residential dwellings, with the provision of affordable housing, public open space, landscaping, sustainable drainage system and vehicular access point".

The development would be situated off London Road, and while the land itself is not part of the Green Belt, it does lie adjacent to it.

"Gladman Developments Ltd's carefully considered proposals will deliver a carefully considered and sensitively designed new neighbourhood for up to 150 new homes that will be well-connected with the existing settlement of Woolmer Green," reads a design and access statement.

"It will also deliver economic growth of the local area through the construction of the new homes and support for existing services and facilities, be an attractive and desirable place to live, and a place that encourages healthy lifestyles through the provision of accessible green spaces that are within easy walking distance of all homes.

"The vision for the site is to create a sensitively designed and high quality place which complements the character of Woolmer Green."
