Church could become flats for homeless people

8th January 2015 Broxtowe Borough Council, Upcoming Events Tags: , , , 0 Comments


Plans to convert a former Church in Stapleford into eight flats for homeless people will be discussed by councillors next week.

If granted, the site of the former Haven Church in Antill Street will be turned into self-contained flats for use by homelessness charity Framework, to help people work towards independent living.

Broxtowe Borough Council has received 18 letters of objection in relation to the application, over issues such as noise, traffic and antisocial behaviour.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s highways team has also raised concerns over the lack of off-street parking.

The proposals, which have been recommended for approval, will be discussed at a meeting of the development control committee on Wednesday, January 14.

    Sounds good to me. I’m not comfortable with the assumption the ex-homeless people will be ‘anti-social’. Can’t see how lack of off street parking will be an issue for the intended residents.

  2. i would of welcomed something like that a couple of years ago when i lost my home to no folt of my own due to ill health , all they could give me was a bed sit in beeston which cost 400 pounds a month and i had to share with dope heads not good .
