Approval has been given by Doncaster Council planners to build 57 affordable homes in Scawsby despite a number of local residents’ objections.

Objectors suggested the new development would be intrusive to existing properties on Eskdale Walk, but an amended scheme includes an eight metre buffer area.

Local councillor for the area, Coun Kevin Rodgers, said: “Even though this has been approved and I spoke in favour of the application, I request that the new estate be sympathetic to the surrounding estate.”
