The proposed development in Portswood ward would be build over 1386 square meters on vacant land close to the railway, and include 36 parking places and 85 cycle spaces.

The “market housing” units would comprise 11 one-bedroom and 36 two-bedroom flats.

It’s thought the last use of the site could have been for the storage of scaffolding in the 80s, with land used by British Rail before that.

Plans for two buildings comprising 16 flats were previously conditionally approved at the site in 2019.

At the time of writing, of seven public comments on the new proposal six are from those supporting the scheme, with one objection.
