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.
