An area of unused land in the heart of Ribbleton could be turned into four community homes.Advertisement
A patch of land which used to be home to some garages has seen plans submitted by Community Gateway Housing to build four two bedroom homes.
The land, approximately 595 square metres, borders Rowan Avenue and backs onto The Grange primary school play ground.
A statement from Community Gateway said: “There is an excellent opportunity to make best use of an under-utilised brownfield site, in a sustainable location and build much needed new residential accommodation in keeping with and contributing towards the sustainable viability of the area.”
Gateway propose to provide a car parking space for each property.
A consultation with neighbouring properties is due to take place.
Anyone wishing to see the full plans or make a comment on them can do so on the city council website.
Comments can be written to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference number 06/2014/0461 by Thursday 24 July.
