Homes plan thumbs up

PLANNING permission has been granted to build upto four houses on an Ilkeston street.

Lloyds TSB executors’ office is planning to either demolish 69 Kingsway and build houses in its place or retain the existing property and build houses around it.

Cllr John Frudd said at a meeting to discuss the plan this week: “There’s plenty of room for up to four dwellings.

“I know we can’t impose anything at this stage but I would like to see the existing dwelling kept – it’s in a good state of external repair and would make a nice centrepiece to the development.”
