Mantle Road block construction begins

Construction work on a new five story apartment block has begun at Number 1 Mantle Road.

The site has was cleared when a pub called the Maypole was demolished in the last decade. Planning permission was secured for a development called the Glasshouse, which was then superseded by this design, which includes:

A commercial unit (Use Class A1) on the ground floor and 3 one bedroom, 4 two bedroom, 1 three bedroom self-contained flats and 1 three bedroom self-contained maisonette on the upper floors incorporating balconies/roof terraces, together with associated landscaping, the provision of bin stores, 14 bicycle spaces and 2 car parking spaces with access onto Reynard Close.

The builders had to wait until Jude Court was completed, so that they could get proper access to the site. With thanks to Matt on Twitter.
