A three-story flat development in Waddon has been given the go-ahead.

A family house on The Ridgeway, a residential street, will be demolished to make way for a three-storey block, containing nine flats.

The development was approved at a council meeting on Thursday night (September 13).

Cllr Lynne Hale, of Sanderstead Ward, objected to the development, arguing it is out of character with nearby residential properties and will visually dominate the area.

The committee concluded the design was in general accordance with housing policy, approving the planning application.
