Alchemy Developments has applied for planning permission to build the eight houses which are being designed by Arka Architects.

A separate planning application has already been submitted to build seven houses and eight flats on a neighbouring piece of ground.

Redevelopment has been on the cards since 2012, when the club closed for the last time despite a community campaign to retain its facilities, which included a bowling green and tennis courts.

In 2012 Castings was a thriving bowling and sports club

The site has been vacant ever since.
