Plans lodged for 28 affordable homes on former care home site in Rotherham
Plans have been lodged to build 28 affordable homes on the site of a former care home in East Herringthorpe.
If approved, Great Places Housing Group will build 25 two bedroomed homes and three homes with three bedrooms at the site on Laudsdale Road.
The developers design and access statement reads: "All dwellings will be made available for rent, with the mix and tenure agreed following discussionsbetween GPHG and the strategic housing officer at Rotherham MBC
"Two car parking spaces per dwelling are provided to three bedroom dwellings with one space to two bedroom dwellings."
A building for life assessment on the application states: "The layout is designed to provide positive development frontage to Lady Oak Road and Lausdale Road, along the northern, eastern, southern and part of the western boundary.
"The proposed development will provide an attractive street scene to the existing footpaths and streets by the site and existing residential development beyond.
"Due to the small scale nature of the development no new streets or footpath links are provided through the site. The scheme utilises the existing infrastructure around the site.
"Given the size of the site, the proposal does not provide new facilities on site, however the site sits in a sustainable location, being within walking distance of facilities."
