Breaking News ! A large homes development in a Worcestershire town has been stopped after developers were found to have broken planning conditions. Building work at the former QinetiQ site off St Andrews Road has been stopped after Persimmon Homes was found to have breached a number of planning conditions set out by Malvern Hills District Council in September 2019. The authority had given the go ahead for the 310-home development but placed a number of conditions before work could take place. Clearance of the site and demolition works, which were allowed, began earlier this year.

Tree protection measures also need to be put in place. Hardstanding is also required to be removed to allow 'tree soil cells'. Enforcement and temporary stop notices were served on Persimmon Homes on October 8.

. Work can only begin again once certain conditions of the planning permission have been approved in writing by Malvern Hills District Council. Since the notices were issued, work on the site has stopped and Persimmon Homes is in discussion with the council to resolve the situation. Cllr David Harrison, portfolio holder for Planning, Infrastructure and Flooding at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “The district council takes all breaches of planning control very seriously especially breaches of planning conditions. “It is not acceptable for a well-established housebuilder or indeed any other developer- that should be aware of planning procedures and understand the importance of planning conditions- to carry out a development before conditions have properly been met.
