Plans to demolish a warehouse in Kingsley, to make way for a development of houses and flats, have been submitted to Northampton Borough Council.
The proposals for an affordable housing development in Brookfield Road would see 13 two-storey houses and six flats built, along with 17 parking spaces.
The plans have been submitted by Pelham Architects, on behalf of Nottingham Community Housing Association.
Documents submitted to the borough council says there is already planning permission in place on the site, for 24 houses and flats.
The planning application says: “The site’s suitability for a change of use to residential has been proven by the fact it already has a permission in place.
“The scheme has been allocated grant funding in principle by the Homes & Communities Agency, with a start on site proposed for summer 2014.
“The community benefit of the scheme is that it provides attractive and efficient affordable homes for the local community.”
The applicant says the scheme has been developed in partnership with the borough council’s housing department, and “directly reflects the housing need” in the town.
