Shakespeare Birthplace Trust opposed to new homes near heritage site

Bloor Homes want to buy land near to Anne Hathaway's Cottage in Shottery to build new homes.

The Communities Secretary Eric Pickle gave the deal the go-ahead but the County Council has said that it is against it.

The trust knows it can't rule out being forced to sell the land at some point.

Peter Kyle is the Chairman of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
