PLANS have been unveiled to build three new homes in a Hampshire village.

New Forest District Council is studying an outline application relating to a former paddock behind a property called Marylands in Ashley Lane, Hordle.

Access would be provided by an existing driveway that would be widened.

The application says: "The proposal site borders the well-established village settlement of Hordle and the public open space areas of Golden Hill.

"Access exists from the main road, Ashley Lane, and it is intended to slightly increase the access width to incorporate a footpath.

"The footpath will accommodate utility services and soil drainage extended from the existing services in the highway and provision for high-speed broadband ducting."
