COUNCIL planners are to consider a 33- home development for Romsey.

An application has been made to Test Valley Borough Council for land south of Sandy Lane, next to the 800-home Abbotswood scheme.

The proposal, which the Abbotswood developers are among objectors to, includes demolition of some existing homes and outbuildings.

A mixture of two, three, four and five bedroom houses is proposed, with a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings ranging from bungalows to two and a half storeys high.

Forty per cent of the homes would be for affordable housing.

A council report has recommended councillors approve the project permission with 20 conditions.
