Plans for unused laundry buildings to be transformed into accommodation in Forres

Plans for unused laundry buildings to be transformed into accommodation in Forres has been submitted.
Plans for unused laundry buildings to be transformed into accommodation in Forres has been submitted.

Unused laundry buildings could be demolished and replaced by homes in a Moray town.

The buildings on three to five Gordon Street in Forres used to contain Direct Laundry Limited.

But plans to get rid of the buildings and construct two townhouses and six flats at the site have been resubmitted after amendments.

A planning application has been lodged with Moray Council.

The proposed plans will have 13 new parking spaces to add to the current three on site.

A planning statement for the proposed transformation said that the build would have materials and design “more sympathetic” to the conservation area.

The report said: “There is a reduced density from 10 to eight and a range of housing types and sizes proposed including, townhouses with private gardens, two ground floor two bed flats which are wheelchair accessible, and four other bedroom flats which meet the requirement of policy H9.

“The two ground floor flats could be considered as the 25 percent affordable housing requirement under policy H8.

“The surface finishes include a mixture of low level planting, private garden spaces, permeable parking spaces, communal seating area and paved paths.

“There are existing mains services for electric, gas, water, BT and foul sewer within Gordon Street and North Road. Ground porosity has already been checked and a private soakaway to discharge surface water is possible within the site.”
