Dorridge bungalow could be razed for two new detached houses

A BUNGALOW in Dorridge could be demolished to make way for two detached homes.

Solihull’s planning committee is set to consider an application to replace 114 Dorridge Road with two four-bed houses.

Planning officers at the council have recommended councillors approve the plans to help meet the borough’s housing needs.

They say designs for the two houses are in keeping with neighbouring houses – as the build would replace a brick bungalow built in the 1960s.

Seven neighbours have opposed the application, from Mr and Mrs Curry of Rowington, believing new residents would overlook their properties.

Highways officers offered no opposition to the homes due to large driveways with room to turn cars.

The applicants applied to the borough as ‘a self-build’, so would be exempt from paying into a community infrastructure levy.

Councillors on the planning committee will make a decision at a meeting on Wednesday (February 26).
