Last chance to voice objections to plans for 400 new homes

CAMPAIGNERS battling against plans to build 400 new homes on land off Crumpfields Lane in Webheath have until Tuesday May 5 to lodge their objections with Redditch borough council.

Members of the Webheath Action Group have long argued that, although they have no objections to new homes nearby – 200 have already been approved – another 400 is excessive, especially when combined with the 2,800 planned for nearby Bentley.

Instead they argue that a site at Bordesley, closer to Redditch town centre, Birmingham and the motorway network, is a more suitable location for a large development.

Residents have until May 5 to register their views by visiting .

The planning inspector is due to hear the case on June 23 with a result expected within two months.
