An affordable housing scheme of 19 flats has been given planning permission to be built on 17-32 Denmark Road.
The flats would replace the two two-storey blocks, which are currently on the site. These blocks are uninhabitable because of subsidence and would be demolished to make way for the new buildings.
Three blocks would be built on the site, a large block containing 15 flats and two smaller blocks of two semi detached houses each.
The buildings will be of modern, domestic design and built of brick, render and cedar panels. All four houses and two of the flats will be fully wheelchair accessible.
Cllr Bob Carden, chair of the planning committee, said, “This scheme is a definite improvement to what was previously on this site and should make a pleasant, well-designed contribution to the area. I am particularly delighted at the standard of accommodation for wheelchair users.”
