Last week a planning application was approved for the derelict Snooker Hall site in Sealand Ave, Garden City.
The application is for 6 no two bedroom houses, 6 no one bedroom apartments & 4 no two bedroom apartments. This development is to be a housing association scheme ( Pennaf) & all accommodation will therefore be affordable to first time buyers. This development will provide much needed new properties for our local people, especially young families & those trying to get on the property ladder. It will certainly create a pleasing street scene at the site, which has been an eyesore for far to long. The building will not commence until the flood defence works on the river bank have been completed. These works should be starting in the next couple of months.
