The proposal in planning terms is classified as a major development, so there is a requirement for the council to undertake a pre-application consultation.

Residents can submit their opinions to the council before September 11.

If the construction goes ahead, the accommodation will have three floors, with each apartment having a bedroom, a kitchen and lounge area, and a wet room.

A site notice and letters, the council says, have been posted to neighbouring properties, landowners and local councillors regarding the proposed development.
