SEVENTEEN new homes could be built in Skerton under two schemes being considered by town hall planners.

The former John O’Gaunt Hotel pub on Torrisholme Road would be demolished and replaced with six homes under plans lodged with Lancaster City Council by White Lund-based VMC Developemtns Ltd.

And 11 more homes would be built on a former allotment site off Ashbourne Road if separate proposals submitted by Applethwaite Ltd are approved.

The John O’Gaunt has lain empty since its closure last March.
