Minutes:

The Assistant Director for Housing & Community Safety presented a report which provided an update on the proposal to develop new council housing for rent on two council-owned garage courts at Newbury Avenue and Chaloners Road.

 

The proposal had evolved from schemes previously approved by Executive and Cabinet, which had since been re-appraised and revised, as detailed in the report.  The proposed development at Newbury Avenue was now for five one-bedroom bungalows designed to be accessible to older people and people with disabilities and adaptable over time, while that at Chaloners Road was for six two-bedroom semi-detached family houses. 

 

Approval in general terms was sought in each case, to allow for some flexibility in the final design. Both schemes were in line with housing needs in their respective areas.  Members were invited to approve, amend or reject the proposal.

 

Resolved:  That the proposal to build new bungalows at Newbury Avenue and new houses at Chaloners Road, as detailed in the report (Option 1), be approved.
