Plans to transform the site of a former police station into a housing scheme have been revealed.
Housing association Linc Cymru wants to build 37 homes on the site off Caerphilly town’s Mountain Road.
The development, if granted planning approval, would include 34 apartments, including 18 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom flats.
Three four-bedroom terraced houses make up the rest of the scheme.
The development includes both homes for social rent and private sale.
Ten of the homes would be for people in need of health and social care support, with the building having a communal lounge, kitchen and staff accommodation.
The scheme also aims to provide affordable homes for people on Caerphilly’s housing register.
The apartment building would be five storeys with underground parking and cycle spaces.
Thirty-nine parking spaces are proposed to serve the development, which would be accessed using the existing road to the former police station from Bronrhiw Fach.
Linc is also building 38 social rent apartments and terraced houses on the former magistrates’ court site – primarily for people aged over 55 – next to the police station.
The plans aim to enhance provision on the neighbouring site, by creating a wheelchair friendly footpath that connects the two developments.
A communal rain garden is also proposed “at the heart” of the scheme.
The consultation is open until January 15 and can be viewed at statutorypublicconsultation.gva.co.uk.
