A 'WEIRD' five-storey house is set to be built on a plot of land in Lower Gornal, despite objections from neighbours.

The modern five-bedroom home which will be built on Deepdale Lane has been branded an "eyesore" by people living nearby.

It has a sauna, steam room and relaxation room in the basement.

One neighbour said: "The appearance of proposed development is weird.

"The majority of existing houses on Deepdale Lane are traditional appearance.

"The proposed development will look completely out of place amongst the existing housing."

Another said: "The proposed dwelling is not remotely in line with the character of any of the other buildings/house on the entire street and this will be an eye soar as it resembles a block of flats with an oddity and this will de‐value the neighbouring properties."

The new contemporary designed home will have five storeys visible from the rear and four at the front, with a brick, render and cladding finish.

There will be an internal garage and two parking spaces on a drive.

Notes by planners state that there were three objections with concerns centring around the design, materials and overlooking.

A report by planners, who approved the application on November 23, said: "The development is considered to be acceptable in terms of scale and its contemporary design.

"The proposed development would not have an adverse impact on neighbour amenities and would not cause harm to the character of the street scene.

"The development would not have a negative impact on highway safety."

A previous proposal for a house on the land was refused in January after planners said it was "overly prominent incongruous addition within the established residential context."

The land used to be part of the garden of 54, Deepdale Lane but has now been separated from it.
