A 24 flat development in Wisbech will no longer have balconies if the developer has its way.
Roddons has asked Fenland District Council for permission to make several amendments to their Napier Court application, at Elizabeth Terrace, which was approved in September 2013.
They wish to alter the facade of the flats, converting doors into windows.
The development, the applicant says, will hark back to the warehouses and shipyards which lined the Wisbech Canal.
The developer said: “The (altered) design of the apartment blocks is intended to reflect the character of warehouses and ship yards which formerly lined the Wisbech Canal.

“It is considered the omission of balcony features does not detract from the evocation of this historic building type.
“The openings in the masonry facades originally proposed as doors will be retained as windows.
