PLANS have been put forward for more than 100 new homes on Netherhampton Road in Harnham.

The new proposal submitted to Wiltshire Council by Vistry Homes Limited is separate to the plans for 640 new homes, also planned for Netherhampton Road, led by Bovis Homes, which was given the green light and criticised last year.

The new plans are calling for up to 106 dwellings north of the A3094 Netherhampton Road, west of the existing Harnham village and to the north of Harnham Business Park.

The development will include a new primary school, employment space and country park, in addition to vehicular access from Netherhampton Road, a central viewing corridor and two bus stops near to the site.

Affordable housing is to be delivered at 40 per cent, alongside housing with between one and four bedrooms including bungalows and flats.

Vistry Homes says the design "provides a large central open space that will serve the development and the wider community in terms of play and experiencing [views of] Salisbury Cathedral".

It added the site will offer a "distinctive sense of place, with a variation in character both in terms of landscape and architecture".

The development is subject to requirements including flood risks, transport networks, the heritage of the area, protection of the River Avon, and preventing damage to the setting of the cathedral.

The company has focussed heavily on Salisbury Cathedral in its planning application, emphasising the views of the cathedral need to be "managed and respected".

A decision will be made on the application on September 28 of this year.

Salisbury City Council's planning committee will be discussing the application in its meeting on Monday, August 2, at 6.30pm in the Guildhall.
