The numbers of 4 bedroomed town houses in the Hungate development are to be reduced.
The £450,000 homes have been difficult to sell and 6 of them are to be replaced by 12 two bedroomed duplex apartments. The latter will sell for less than £300,000 each.
The Planning committee is being recommended to approve the change and a copy of the report from Council officers can be found here http://tinyurl.com/Hungate-change-Sept-2012
The planning committee is also being asked to renew the permission for the site which was first granted in 2006.
Under the proposal – which is also recommended for approval – the developer would have up to 10 years to complete the building work.
