More social housing for town as planning is approved
Plans to build 21 new family homes on former disused garage sites have been given planning approval.
The plans include the development of five terraced houses and a four-storey block of 16 self-contained flats, plus 44 parking spaces and a cycle store on the former garage and compound site behind Eagle Way in Shoeburyness. The existing site was built in the 1970’s and is not fit for use as the garage blocks are too small for today’s modern cars.
These homes will be managed by South Essex Homes on behalf of the Council and is the third phase of a programme of work by the Council to transform disused garage sites into homes. Phase two is in Rochford Road and Audley Close and were completed in May 2019, while phase one is in Ashanti Close, Bulwark Road and Exeter Close and was completed in March 2017.
Cllr Ian Gilbert, leader of the council with a responsibility for housing development, said: “Providing additional council housing for residents in the town and easing the burden on the social housing waiting list is a main priority for the administration, so I am very glad the development control committee approved these plans.
“Instead of a disused garage site, which attracts anti-social behaviour and is of no use to the local community, there will be new council homes for our residents and parking provision for the community. I look forward to seeing the building programme progress.”The development control committee approved this application on 2 June.
