Angus Council this week approved a proposal to build affordable housing on the site of a former Carnoustie care home.
The decision was reached by the development standards committee during a meeting in Forfar on Tuesday and paves the way for 16 new homes to be erected on the disused Camus House site at West Path.
Approval has been given for a development of 4,430 square metres which will encompass eight one bed single storey homes, a pair of two bed double storey homes and one three bed two storey home all for general use affordable rent.
A further four two bed homes and one three bed single storey dwelling will also be built for affordable rent by disabled ex-service personnel.
The report addressed a number of objections which had been raised by the public, including over-development of the site, an adverse impact on residential amenity, increased flood risk and an increased pressure on parking in the area.
