PLANS have been submitted to demolish a large house and replace it with a block of 24 flats in Poole.

Applicants AJ Land Consultancy Ltd are seeking permission for the development at 539 Ashley Road, Parkstone.

At present one house with more than four bedrooms occupies the site.

If approved by BCP Council, the scheme would see this building flattened and replaced by a single block of 23 two-bed flats and one one-bed flat.

Responses to the proposal from BCP Council's transport and flood and coastal erosion risk management teams have highlighted a number of factors that need to be addressed within the application.

Residents have until August 18 to make comments about the plans, which can be viewed on the local authority's planning website.
