The application, for 142 homes at Falstaff, Parson Cross, 116 at Park Spring Drive, Norfolk Park; and 47 in Shirecliffe, are the first phase of a plan to build 2,300 new homes over 15 years.

Construction at Parson Cross and Norfolk Park is set to begin in July, if approved, while Shirecliffe would start next year.
