Public have their say on plans for 1,300 Leckhampton homes
HUNDREDS of people have turned out to have their say on controversial plans to build 1,300 new homes in Cheltenham.
Developers put on exhibitions over the weekend about their proposals for the Leckhampton and Shurdington area.
The current proposals could include a new primary school, open space the size of 16 football pitches, a GP surgery along with shops and allotments.
The consortium of developers is also asking for opinions on ideas such as a new care home or cottage hospital.
