Old laundry demolished

The old laundry site

The Brooks laundry building, off Lansdowne Hill, closed over ten years ago and has been derelict ever since. The derelict building has now finally been flattened to make way for new buildings.

Planning permission was agreed in September 2019 to build 51 residential flats in a part 6 and part 7 storey block on the laundry site. The plans include a separate 4 storey office building.

The flats are to include 11 homes at social rent and 5 shared ownership homes. 5 flats are required to be fully accessible to residents using a wheelchair.

Developers have submitted a formal planning application for 51 new homes and a new office block off Lansdowne Hill to replace the derelict ex-laundry building. The plans show the housing block as 6-7 storeys high and the office block as 4 storeys. There are 5 parking spaces. And two new stepped footpaths into York Hill estate. The new scheme includes 20% affordable housing: five 3-bedroom homes at social rent and four 1or2-bedroom homes at intermediate rent.
