Plans to demolish a Seven Kings car repair garage and build a five-storey block of flats in its place have been given the green light.
The car-free development at 550 High Road will have retail space on the ground floor and nine new flats above, made up of four one-bedroom flats, four two-bedroom flats and one three-bedroom flat.
The development seeks to increase the amount of new homes on the site by adding an additional storey to the previously consented scheme which was granted planning permission in 2017.
"The overall objective of the scheme is to provide a high-quality development at this site, in order to better utilise the vacant plot of land and contribute towards the councils housing targets," the applicant said.
A total of 15 cycle spaces will be provided as part of the development and private outdoor space will also be provided in the form of a private balconies and terraces.
