PLANS to build new shops at the heart of Droitwich’s Yew Tree Hill development have been revealed.
A new retail centre, with up to five shops and a convenience store, would be built at the site by developer Henry Davidson Developments.
The controversial site, on land north of Pulley Lane and Copcut Lane, has previously been slated for causing traffic and noise disruptions in the area.
Overall it will include up to 765 homes, a 200-bed care home and a mixed-use local centre once finished.
Scott Davidson, managing director at Henry Davidson, said: “This is a great opportunity to provide this new community in Droitwich with first class retail facilities alongside a high quality residential care home.
“We have acquired the site from Barberry who have done sterling work in creating the master plan for Yew Tree Village and bringing it to market.
“Respected national house builders are delivering a range of new homes and our development will complement and enhance this new community.”
The plans will be heard by Wychavon District Council in the new year.
