A planning application has been submitted to Stevenage Borough Council to demolish a pair of semi-detached houses and build 20 flats in their place.

The plans for Burwell Road in Stevenage include 12 one-bed and eight two-bed flats, as well as 18 parking spaces.

A planning statement with the application says: "This scheme is effectively the second phase of a new housing development along Burwell Road, close to Shephall Way.

"The new building would be three storeys high where it adjoins and takes its lead from the recently constructed 15 units.

"It is hoped the council will agree this development, just like that which has been constructed on the adjoining former March Hare site, is acceptable in both principle and detail."
