107-homes scheme backed by firms
DEVELOPERS behind plans for 107 homes in Cheltenham have hit back at claims they are "unimaginative".
The criticism came from Cheltenham Civic Society who were passing comment on Taylor Wimpey's proposals to build the houses at Travis Perkins' headquarters in Gloucester Road.
Bosses at the developers said in contrast to the view expressed by the civic society most residents had come out in support of the scheme.
If the 107 home estate is approved by planners, Travis Perkins will move into a new base at the old Bonella Works site, in Gloucester Road.

Philip Court of Taylor Wimpey said: "We very much hope residents and the council will welcome and support both of these planning applications, which seek to redevelop two brownfield sites.
"Our housing proposal will deliver new family and affordable homes in a very sustainable location within easy access of the town centre."
Martin Meech, of Travis Perkins, added: "We are delighted to be planning for our long term future in Cheltenham: retaining all current jobs and continuing to provide an important service."
