The site on Perlethorpe Drive which is in the Council’s ownership has been derelict for some time. 

 

We have previously explored options for both affordable and market housing but neither were viable due to the down turn in the housing market.

 

Development on this site is now viable and we will be revisiting these options in the near future, subject to planning permission being granted.”
