FURIOUS residents have attacked plans for even more homes in Webheath.

The area, once quiet, leafy and green, is now framed by numerous housing developments and constant building work.

Housebuilder Redrow Homes Ltd has sent a letter to residents saying it is preparing a planning application for 63 dwellings at Barn House Farm, Foxlydiate Lane.

The firm says the proposed development will include public open space and landscaping.

However, incensed locals have said enough is enough.

One local resident, Alan Adamson, said: "We are being increasingly frustrated and disappointed at the continuous disruption to our lives in the wake of more and more housing development taking place in our rural environment.

"We have endured numerous problems and discomforts from the continuous development of land on both sides of Church Road.

"Five schemes have already been completed, or are under construction, with more in the pipeline for Church Road."

He added: "The Foxlydiate area is now being targeted with this proposal and another by Whitbread at the Foxlydiate Pub/hotel and others in progress.

"This is all too much for our rural community."

Residents have raised a number of concerns with the proposed development such as Foxlydiate Lane being a dangerous road, footpaths being totally inadequate, and access to the development would be extremely dangerous.

They also say the proposal is yet another way in which the embattled area will lose the "very precious and productive rural aspect" and farming land.

Redrow Homes, which asked for residents' feedback, said the application will be submitted, but has not said when that will be.
