Plans for 24 new homes on Barnfield estate are set to be decided at a meeting next week.
The site’s Barnfield hub is moving to nearby site with work on that set to begin soon.
Also on site was a public toilet which closed in 2021 due to anti-social behaviour and leaks. A replacement toilet is set to be located opposite the new block on Herbert Road.
A total of 1,750 council homes are being built at various projects borough-wide. The borough has seen those designated as homeless households increase substantially in recent years and is now at 1,880.
That’s a 13 per cent increase on the previous year with millions are being spent on expensive emergency housing.
