DEVELOPERS have submitted plans to build nine homes near Ross-on-Wye.

Peter Dowle wants to place the properties at Waters Edge on Sharman Pitch in Howle Hill.

His proposals include two semi-detached houses and a mix of three to five bedroom houses.

They would be designed to have a contemporary look and builders will use local stone and vertical timber cladding if Herefordshire Council planners approve the scheme.

Residents have until April 18 to comment on the proposals which planners are expected to determine by May 6.
