PLANS for 50 family Council houses at Duck Lane, Kinson have been submitted.

The scheme would see a mix of two, three and four-bedroom good quality family homes for rent, built on former playing fields adjacent to Duck Lane. The plans also detail a new community use building, two acres of landscaped areas, cycle routes and skateboard park.

Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "Providing more affordable homes in Bournemouth is a top priority. If given the go-ahead, this will be the largest house build developed by the Council since the 1980s and it will provide much-needed family accommodation for those residents currently on the Housing Register."

The scheme will cost approximately £6.5million paid for by investment from the Homes and Communities Agency, prudential borrowing and other grants. If planning permission is granted, work would start on site in late summer 2013.

The final planning application follows detailed public consultation carried out in Spring 2012 and feedback was used to inform changes to the final design.
