Plans to build almost 900 houses near Coate Water in Swindon have been submitted to the borough council.

The proposals for the land between the country park and the Great Western Hospital are a revision of previous plans to build 960 homes.

Developers had originally wanted to build 1,500 homes on 200 hectares of land, but scaled the project down following a public inquiry in 2009.

Save Coate Action Group has been set up to protect the land from development.
