Two homes in Preston Road, Weymouth could be demolished and replaced with fifteen two-bed flats.

An application for eight flats has been lodged with Dorset Council for 56 Preston Road by Nylo Homes Ltd.

The application suggests increasing the number of parking spaces on the site from two up to ten.

A decision is expected to be made by a planning officer with the scheme open for comments until November 17th.

Nearby a similar application for 38 Preston Road, for seven two-bed flats, has been approved by Dorset Council with an alteration to the original conditions relating to the location of a bin and bike store area. 

That application was submitted by Town & Coast Ltd.
