Developers wanting to build hundreds of homes in Cheltenham have decided to appeal against a decision by the borough council to refuse planning permission.

Bovis Homes and Miller Homes submitted an application for 650 homes, a GP surgery, offices and a primary school on fields near Kidnappers Lane in Leckhampton.

An appeal is currently being prepared for submission, a spokesman said.

Permission was rejected in July.

A statement from the two developers said they were "very disappointed" with Cheltenham Borough Council's decision.

The land is located inside an area earmarked for 33,000 new homes, under a housing plan for north Gloucestershire.
