Total of 17 homes approved

A NEW development of houses and flats has been given the green light by planners.

AmicusHorizon has been given permission to build nine houses and eight flats in Fellows Road. The development will provide 100 per cent affordable housing.

The scheme was unanimously backed at last week’s borough council planning meeting.

Cllr Godfrey Daniel, chairman of the council’s planning committee, said: “It’s an attractive scheme that will provide quality housing in the area.”
