The site of a derelict pub on a Northampton estate will soon be cleared to make way for new homes.
Plans have now been given the green light by Northampton Borough Council to clean-up the Kings Heath site in Welland Way so 14 new three-bedroom homes can be built on the land of the former Silver Cornet pub.
The 14 homes, which were approved by the local authority last week, will have a total of 14 residential car parking spaces and three spaces for visitors.
New trees and shrubs will also be planted around the site - which is contributing towards the council’s five-year housing supply - as part of the development.
But plans have been amended to allow for tighter security.
Surrounding the homes will feature a two metre-high perimeter wall and to the front of each property will have a 1.5-metre metal railing.
It is also proposed that the communal car court is to get CCTV cameras to ensure the safety and protection of vehicles.
