PLANS to create 20 homes at the site of a demolished former social club have been drawn up.

Proposals have been drawn up to build the houses at the site of the former Moss Bank Sports and Social Club at Queensway.

The premises were demolished last year and the site consists of a cleared area of hardstanding.

Plans state that the proposed development will consist of a mix of 14 two and three-bedroom semi-detached properties, along with six, two-bedroom terraced properties arranged in two rows of three.

A design and access statement has been drawn up by John McCall Architects to support the plans, submitted by applicant Edward Brack.

The application states: "The design, mix and scale of the proposed dwellings is designed to be sensitive to and in keeping with the character and appearance of the area, and indeed reflect local market demand.

The new development will provide much needed starter and smaller family homes in an attractive rural setting which does not undermine the character of the village."

Plans add: "In summary, the proposed development on Queensway will function well and add to the overall quality of the area" and "will provide attractive homes, which are of an appropriate mix, layout and scale.

The proposed development will establish and maintain a strong sense of place, creating an attractive, welcoming and distinctive housing development which is safe, inclusive and accessible."

The application also claims the proposals would help in "achieving sustainable development, providing environmental, social and economic benefits.

"On this basis, the proposal is in full accordance with the development plan and as a result should be supported."

The plans are on public consultation until Friday, April 3.
