Minster Property Group has received planning permission from the city council to begin building the new homes on land At Hempsted East, north Of Hicks Lane.

An outline application had previously been approved, but the final details including the appearance of the homes and landscaping have now been given consent, meaning building works can begin.

The development will be reached from an access road leading from Trelowen Way, close to London Road.
