PLANS have been drawn up to build five homes on land which has been unused for a decade.

Proposals to build the homes on the site at the former 7A Cooper Lane, Haydock have been submitted to the council by applicant Neil Marsh.

A design and access statement says: "The land has been vacant since February 2010, the last use being offices for a security company who were located within a building on the site which has since been demolished.

"The proposals are to build three two-bedroom and two three-bedroom houses in two-storey, terraced format. Off-street parking will be along the site’s frontage with each property having two dedicated parking spaces.

"The properties will be built using red/orange facing brickwork and flat profile grey roof tiles to reflect the existing local vernacular and character".

Plans are on consultation until Thursday, July 9.
