We covered the plans to build three blocks of flats in part of the Dean Gardens car park back in a post back in August. The formal planning application has now been lodged (Ref No: 203719FUL).
The essence of the application is for 53 new homes in three blocks of flats ranging from 4-8 storeys and a loss of about 20 parking spaces.
The deadline for comments is 10th November. At the time, we noted that there was concern from nearby residents about ensuring the anti-social behaviour centred around the car park and Maitland Yard was recognised and taken in to account with the design of these new blocks. How this has been dealt with is something we will be looking at in this application.
