The Northampton-based business plans to build the two, three and four-bedroom homes on almost 50 acres of farmland Winnycroft Lane and next to the M5 at Matson.

An initial application was deferred by Gloucester City Council in April after concerns were raised about drainage, sports facilities, highways and nearby livestock, although the site was granted permission in February 2017 - with conditions.

Councillors voted in support of the development by a majority of nine, with two abstentions.
