Planning bosses gave applicants prior approval for a similar scheme in April which meant developers had permission to build 14 flats at the site providing they ironed out issues relating to contamination, flooding and transport associated with the plans.

Environmental health chiefs consulted on the plans pointed out its location as being within historic contaminative land and applicants must meet a number of conditions in order to mitigate this impact if plans are given the go-ahead.
