Housing bid at former children's home
1:40pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A former children’s home in Southampton could become housing.
The city council has applied for permission to knock down Seymour House in Seymour Road and replace it with 14 new properties.
The building was originally created as a children’s home, before being used as a homeless hostel and then temporary accommodation for people waiting to be placed in council housing.
Under the plans, which have been drawn up by Capita Symonds, the buildings would be demolished and replaced with eight two-bedroom flats, two one-bedroom apartments and four three-bedroom houses, with parking.
A decision is due by December 12.
