Plans have been lodged for a block of flats to be built between a bingo hall and supermarket in a city suburb.

The proposals would see a vacant warehouse next to Mecca Bingo and Lidl in Aylsham Road in Mile Cross demolished to make way for a three-storey townhouse.

"The area is well served with retail and leisure facilities, with several supermarkets, takeaways, a library and sports facilities within easy walking distance.

"There is easy access to public transport and car hire, and the provision of secure cycle storage to negate the use of private vehicle ownership."
