Go-ahead for six flats

A FORMER school has been given permission to be converted into six flats.

Groups including Erewash Writers, which meet at Parklands Connexion next door to the Parklands buildings in Stanhope Street, Long Eaton, had complained that the application by CAB Automotive would restrict access to the centre.

But during the meeting of Erewash Borough Council’s planning committee to discuss the plan on Wednesday it was revealed the applicant has agreed to reduce the number of car parking spaces to allow access to the centre.
