A THREE-storey building hosting seven apartments could be built on disused land in Gornal if plans are given the green light.

An application has been submitted to Dudley Council to build the flats on the northwest corner of Kennedy Crescent, close to Holloway Street and Thornleigh.

Planning documents show the scheme would see the creation of a three-storey building for seven two-bedroom apartments along with a car park for 11 spaces.

The plan has so far received two formal objections from neighbours, who cite the potential impact on privacy, views and trees.

Concerns were also raised about what boundary will be in place to maintain of the privacy of neighbouring business on Holloway Street.

The Landscape Design team at Dudley Council raised no specific objections, but stated a landscape maintenance plan for the open space behind the site should be submitted.

Planning documents state the team also recommend that plans for the entrance to the site be amended with planting or redesigned hard landscaping to make it more welcoming.

They went on to recommend that a soft landscape condition is required if permission is granted.

Meanwhile the land contamination team recommended that certain conditions should be attached to any approval, including a risk assessment of the land and ground gases and vapours.

The application is now open for comments which can be found using the reference number P20/0180.
