Councillors making a decision on plans for 140 new homes in Lockleaze will be recommended to approve the controversial scheme.

A decision on the homes to be built at an old depot off Dovercourt Road has been postponed due to The Queen’s death, but a report provided to the members of development control committee reveals what officers recommended they should do.

It says that the planning application from Goram Homes should be approved with an agreement 42 homes be affordable.

The 140 homes would include a mix of two, three and four-storey buildings, comprising about 63 apartments and 77 houses.
