AN application to erect 24 dwellings on land between Ox Drove and Walworth Road has been submitted to Test Valley Borough Council.

The proposal seeks permission to build the homes following demolition of an existing dwelling, stable and related structures with access to Walworth Road.

Houses in the plans include six two-bed homes, seven three-bed homes and 11 four-bed homes.

The application site lies within the area identified as countryside in the Test Valley Borough Local Plan and will be contrary to council policy unless there is an overriding need or it is of a type appropriate within the countryside.
