A pair of pre-fab homes are set to be demolished to make way for five new rented properties.

Freebridge Community Housing has been given planning permission to demolish two houses at Walsoken, near Wisbech.

The social landlord has already demolished seven of the 1940s properties and built 14 new rented homes around the site on Chapnall Road.

Walsoken Parish Council supported what it described as "a well thought-out plan" for three two-bedroom and two three-bedroom homes on the site.

In an email to planning officers Charlotte Pursey, Freebridge's development lead, said it will "deliver five affordable rented houses that people could be living in next Christmas".

Both of the current properties, which were built on what was originally an orchard, are empty.
