A date has been set for a High Court hearing into whether 1,000 homes can be built near the village of Bishops Cleeve in Gloucestershire.

Plans for two developments, at Homelands Farm and at Cleevelands, were approved by a planning inspector after an appeal by the developer in July.

The plans had originally been rejected by Tewkesbury Borough Council.

The legal challenge will be heard at the High Court in Birmingham on 11 and 12 February 2013, the council said.
