Plans for 12 new affordable homes to help local families in Grindleford have been unanimously approved by the Peak District National Park Authority.
The proposals, from social housing provider Dales Housing, will see 12 outdated flats for the elderly at Mount Pleasant Court demolished and replaced with four affordable two- and three-bedroom houses.
The second scheme is for six houses and two flats, all two or three bedrooms, for affordable rent on a greenfield site off Mount Pleasant Road.
The homes will be built largely of natural stone, designed to blend with local traditional architecture, with ‘green’ features such as photovoltaic roof-tiles for renewable energy, high levels of insulation and water butts for the garden. They will also have enough parking spaces to minimise on-street parking.Follow @csabian
