An application to build 24 homes on land where a former working men’s club once stood is open to comment from members of the public.
EN:Able Build, a not-for-profit company based in Sheffield, is seeking permission to build 24 affordable homes on the vacant site of the former Coronation Club off King Edward Road in Thorne.
The company has applied to Doncaster Council for planning permission to build six 3 bedroom properties and eighteen 2 bedroom properties on the site of the now demolished club building.
A design and access statement submitted with the application says: “The development of the site is an opportunity to provide much needed 2 and 3 bedroom affordable housing in a predominantly residential area”. It adds that the proposed development is for the north of England housing association Together Housing Group and that the houses would be offered for ‘affordable rent’.
The application was submitted in March following a public consultation event in January. The application is open for comment from members of the public and the site notice gives a deadline of 15th May 2020 for representations to be received.
The proposals can be viewed on the Doncaster Council planning portal under reference: 20/00738/FULM
