New homes to be built

PLANS have been approved for 39 new homes to be built.

Construction company Lovell Partnership Ltd submitted the plans for 39 homes, garages and parking spaces, in Kirby Street, Mexborough, to Doncaster Council.

Nine objections were received, with reasons including the lack of parking facilities for existing residents and unsuitable access for emergency vehicles.

But councillors voted unanimously in favour at Doncaster Council’s Planning Committee.

The site is part of a Pathfinder regeneration programme.
