Plans submitted by Nottingham City Homes (NCH) for 48 new apartments in St Ann’s have been approved.
The three storey building, to be built on the site of the former care home at Oakdene, will feature one bedroom flats.
NCH expects to appoint a contractor later this year with plans to be on site in early 2021. The properties would be completed around summer 2022.
The flats will go to people on the council house waiting list.
Nick Murphy, the Chief Executive of Nottingham City Homes, said: “This year is turning into another busy one for NCH as we strive to build even more council homes across the city.
“We already have planning applications for affordable housing around the city and we look forward to transforming the Oakdene site in St Ann’s, if we are given planning permission.
“Affordable flats are very much in demand and will help people living in council houses who are currently affected by the bedroom tax move somewhere more suitable, while freeing up houses for another family on the waiting list.”
