Plans have been put forward to build new homes in Albert Street.

Developers have submitted plans to demolish the existing buildings at the former Citroen garage in Albert Street, Rugby, and replace them with 25 new homes.

The development, which has been recommended for approval, would include 9 one-bed flats, 6 two-bed flats and 10 two-bed houses with access and parking.

The houses would be for ‘socially rented occupation’ and would be managed by Waterloo Housing Association.

A total of 19 parking spaces would be provided with 17 of these being within the site access off Albert Road and the other 2 being accessed of Albert


Five neighbours have objected to the plans with concerns included increased traffic, noise and parking problems.

The plans are due to be discussed at a Rugby Borough Council meeting this evening (Wednesday).
