It is earmarked for the west of Gloster Hill Farmhouse, Gloster Hill, Amble, and has prompted a string of objections.

At Amble Town Council last Thursday, the meeting heard that the application will go to the planning committee on Tuesday, May 3, while a site visit is scheduled for Monday, April 4.

○ Last month, an outline bid for six homes and detached garages on land north of Gloster Hill was approved, to the dismay of objectors.
