RESIDENTS in South Woodford have urged council bosses to throw out plans to build flats in place of a bungalow.

Developers want to construct a two and a half storey building comprising of seven flats in Glebelands Avenue.

People living nearby have criticised the proposals insisting the building would be out of keeping with the area and would cause parking and traffic problems.

30 letters of objection have been sent to the council but planning experts have recommended passing the application subject to a number of conditions.

Under the plans four car parking spaces will be provided as well as a refuse and cycle storage areas.

Three previous applications have been rejected.

A decision will be made at a meeting on Monday (September 27).
