800-home plan for Green Belt

A DEVELOPER has hosted an exhibition on its proposals for up to 800 new homes and 80 care units in Coalpit Heath.

Bloor Homes wants to build on around 39 acres of a 185 acre (75 hectare) site on land east of Roundways, which is currently in the Green Belt.

The developer says its application will include a new two-form entry primary school, community centre and new access roads onto Roundways for traffic.

But campaigners say the scheme proposed is "unsustainable" and a councillor has described building on top of old mine workings in the narrowest part of the Green Belt as a "very bad idea".

More than 200 people attended the exhibition.
