Documents outline how a public consultation took place at the Brookhaven Community Centre in October.
Plans for the site received positive comments from councillors and nearby residents – who were keen to see something happen with the site.
A statement from Gateway said: “Community Gateway Association and Pozzoni Architecture Limited believe this is a high quality residential scheme that makes effective use of the site, and fulfils a need within the community, providing much needed housing, and enhancing the public realm with an improved green space.”
