SIX homes and 15 new flats could be built on the site of a former print works in Whitchurch after fresh plans were submitted to Shropshire Council.

Applicant Alex Sharp, of Astwood Investments Ltd, supported by Carl Hughes of HDS Architectural Services, the Foundry, Yorke Street, Wrexham, has put forward the proposals for the former Herald Printers Work in Newtown.

The plans also include land to the rear of the property which runs down to Jubilee Park.

In a statement accompanying the application, HDS Architectural Services said the plans mirrored a previous application which was submitted in 2018, but which has since lapsed.

It added: "The layout, scale and landscaping of this scheme is the same as was previously approved. Therefore, we suggest that these proposals will be acceptable for this application, as there has been no change."

The spokesman for the architects also said the company did not see issues with the scheme and asked Shropshire to grant the application.

He added: "As this scheme is very similar to what was approved, we do not for see any issues with the scheme as submitted.

"We do not believe that any relevant national, or local planning policy has changed since this application was approved that might materially affect a decision on a new application.

"We therefore respectfully request that planning permission is to be granted for this scheme."

Previously, permission was granted for 12 apartments in 2006, and in 2017 permission was gained for six dwellings and three apartments on the site.
