The half-hectare plot off the A4110 Canon Pyon Road near the junction with the A4103 Roman Road, currently a paddock, lies immediately south of Elgar Place, the newly completed 95-home Taylor Wimpey estate.
A planning application by Laith and Diana Majeed of a neighbouring property is for outline permission covering road access onto A4110, and if successful would be followed by a later application with details of the houses and landscaping.
Currently, “this land serves no real purpose and has become landlocked by residential development on all sides”, their application says.
With a lower housing density than the neighbouring estate, the initial plan for the site is for one four-bedroom and three three-bedroom detached houses, for market sale. There would be parking for 13 cars.
The two-storey houses’ north-south orientation would “ensure that solar generation and solar gain would be highly efficient”, while air-source heat pumps and sustainable drainage systems would also feature, the application explains.
A secondary school, park, shops, supermarket, church, vets and medical facilities are “all within a two-kilometre walking distance”, it adds.
Comments on the planning application, numbered 233059 , can be made until November 21.
