City councillors today rejected a plan to develop a site to the back of numbers 45 to 47 Rodney Hill, off Occupation Lane in Loxley.

They agreed with the views of planning officers and nearby residents that the site was not suitable for a house.

Although planning permission for a home on the sloping land had been granted before, in 1994, three subsequent applications had been rejected by councillors.

They had similarly been thrown out by planning inspectors when taken to appeal.

Coun Peter Price said: "I can understand the developer trying to fit something on there but I think it's beyond developing."
