DEVELOPERS seeking to build a large-scale housing complex in Hereford have revised their scheme.

Gladman Developments had initially wanted to site 120 homes on land off Hampton Dene Road.

But, as reported by the Hereford Times, the application only came before Herefordshire Council's planning committee in April, resulting in Gladman making an appeal on non-determination grounds.

The appeal will be heard at a planning inquiry in September.

In the meantime, the firm has re-submitted an application in order to alleviate concerns raised by some councillors in relation to the effect the scheme would have on the local landscape.

The proposal has been scaled back to 110 homes, while a Section 106 agreement will be provided for the playing fields.

A "dense landscape buffer" will also be on the northern edge of the site and the drainage strategy updated.
