Plans for more than 100 council houses worth more than £10m are set to be approved by Nottingham City Council.

The 49 homes on Cranwell Road in Strelley will be built on the site of Cranwell Flats, which are currently being demolished.

A city council spokesman said the houses are part of "the biggest council building programme" in the past 40 years.

The remaining 55 homes will be built in the Meadows area of the city.

The city's executive board is expected to approve the project, which will be funded from its capital programme, at a meeting on Tuesday.

The council plans to build more than 400 new energy efficient council homes in the next five years.

These homes will be built in Radford, Bestwood Park, Aspley, Top Valley and St Ann's, the council said.
