The sites on Ludwick Way and The Commons will provide 10 new, high-quality houses which will be made available to people on the council's housing needs register.

Six three-bedroom houses are proposed for Ludwick Way with landscaping in front and to the rear of the building, including new silver birch planting.

Four two-bedroom terraced homes with car parking at the rear are planned for The Commons site. Landscaping will be provided in front and to the rear of the new houses with existing green space and trees being retained and improved where possible.

The council hopes to be able to award the contracts for these developments in the autumn, with work starting on the sites early next year.

Councillor Nick Pace, Executive member for Housing and Communities said: "We are committed to providing modern social housing for the community and these high-quality developments will be a welcome addition to our award-winning Affordable Housing Programme, which has so far delivered over 300 homes for local people."
