54 affordable home plan in Scunthorpe

Plans have been lodged to build 54 affordable homes on a former council building site in Scunthorpe.

The proposals have been lodged for the former Brumby Resource Centre, East Common Lane, by Jackson Design Associates.

North Lincolnshire Council looked to redevelop the site back in April 2015 after declaring the centre surplus to their requirements.

A mixture of homes have been proposed as part of the development, including apartments, semi-detached dwellings and bungalows.

The application seeks full planning permission for 24 apartments, 22 semi-detached homes and eight bungalows.

The developer said in a design and access statement that the proposed application is in a sustainable location and would help with the council’s housing supply.

They said: “The site is in a sustainable location, well served by public transport and within close proximity of local amenities.

“The resultant scheme would embrace a mix of accommodation types and sizes and would be capable of providing access roads, appropriate landscaping and acceptable standards of private amenity space and car parking.”

A decision on the proposals is expected to be taken by North Lincolnshire Council at a later date.
