Plans for 114 new homes have been lodged for land off the busy A49 - and residents are worried it will stretch vital services and cause traffic chaos.

Redrow Homes has submitted the proposal for the home off the west side of Lyth Hill Road in Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury.

The developer says the complex would comprise 17 five-bed homes, 22 four-beds, 34 three-beds, 33 two-beds and eight one-beds.

It also says there will be a "high-quality landscaping scheme sensitive to the existing landscape character which will enhance the environment for residents and the benefit of the local community".

Redrow also says there will be a children's play area.

It says the development would bring construction jobs and economic benefit to the area, with more "economically active" residents in Shrewsbury, and that the "green space provision" in the area would exceed policy requirements of 27.5 per cent.
