They want to replace the unlisted house with six one-bedroom affordable homes.
A planning statement statement said the new development would meet the needs of tenants and fit in with the area.
It said: “Although the brief is to construct simple affordable housing, care has been taken to style the buildings to meet the expectation of tenants, and to endeavour to create simple architecture reflecting today’s standards and trends as well as keeping with the surrounding mix of buildings.”
