A plan for the construction of 10 homes close to Moses Gate train station is up for consideration by the council.

The applicant, DOI Construction, applied for planning permission for a site on Lorne Street on October 30 last year.

The plan for the construction of 10 homes includes a pair of semi-detached properties and two terraces of four properties. All are two storeys with parking spaces at the front and outdoor spaces at the rear.

Previously the council said the site on Lorne Street is suitable for a total of eight homes but the application by DOI Construction said a total of 10 homes is in accordance with all the relevant policies as well.

The application said: "The proposed development is in accordance with the policies of the Bolton Core Strategy and Allocations Plan and also accords with government guidance as detailed within the National Planning Policy Framework.

"Consequently, having regard to the development plan and all material considerations, there is a compelling case for planning permission to be granted without delay, in accordance with the presumption in favour of sustainable development of the National Planning Policy Framework."

A consultation is open on the Bolton Council planning portal and the deadline for a decision by Bolton Council is in April.
