COUNCILLORS have approved plans for 64 flats and houses on the former Greenock Health Centre.
Sanctuary Scotland is proposing the affordable housing development on Duncan Street at Roxburgh Street.
Inverclyde Planning Board granted permission for the development on Wednesday having previously delayed a decision so that discussions could take place over playpark provision.
Council officials had recommended approval and confirmed that Sanctuary had agreed to contribute funding towards upgrading the play area between Sir Michael Street and Ann Street.
The housing development will be six blocks –- two four-storey buildings containing a total of 44 flats, facing Roxburgh Street, and four two-storey terraced blocks of 20 houses to the interior of site backing on to both Duncan Street and Holmscroft Avenue.
Accommodation will comprise one, two, three and four-bedroom dwellings. There would be 67 car parking spaces.
