Sheltered housing gets support of councillors

A COMPANY’s plan to build warden-controlled sheltered accommodation have won support from councillors despite a neighbouring school’s objections.

Brett Bros wants to build 16 homes at Middlewood House, Middlewood, Ushaw Moor, on land that is designated as Green Belt.

Members of Durham City Council’s development control committee are minded to approve the plan but need the Government Office North-East to give the green light because of the Green Belt issue.

The committee heard that Durham Community Business College objected to the loss of access by its pupils across the site, considering its removal a “health and safety risk’’.

Councillors agreed to the stopping up of a footpath on the land.
