PLANNING chiefs are studying proposals to build four detached houses in a Hampshire village.

Solent Projects New Homes Ltd is seeking consent to transform a vacant piece of land behind two existing houses in Manor Road at Milford on Sea.

The application, submitted to New Forest District Council, says: "The location benefits from a good level of accessibility.

"Within easy access of the site there are a range of services and facilities in Milford on Sea.

"The proposed houses would blend in with other development in the surrounding area.

"Both the layout of the site, and the internal arrangement of the houses, have been designed to ensure the future occupants have a high standard of living."
