A NEW 15-storey block of residential flats has been given planning permission at Shackleton Road.

The new building aims to cater for first-time buyers, with prices for small studio apartments starting at £119,000.  

A total of 150 apartments are set to be constructed in the building, which will be known as The Hub.

The development will also include parking for bicycles and motorbikes, as well as a car-sharing scheme, disability bays, a residents’ only gym, laundry and communal spaces.
