A SCALED down bid to build four homes adjacent to the ‘nationally significant’ ruins of Monk Bretton Priory has been earmarked for approval.
The application relates to the former Burton Grange Nursery site, on Abbey Lane, and consists of one pair of two-storey semi-detached houses and two detached bungalows.
Historic England objected to the proposals when submitted in a five-home form as the fifth was deemed too close to the 12th century Grade I-listed Cluniac ruins, but have lodged no concerns with the reduced version.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
