THE site of a former Tory club could be transformed with 46 new houses.
Plans have been submitted to the borough council for a residential development with car parking, amenity space, storage area and landscaping at the old Ellesmere Port Conservative Club in Westminster Road.
The applicant submitted by Mr R Wright will decided in the coming months.
Members moved out of the 100-year-old clubhouse several months ago after it became too large for their needs.
They have since found a new home at the former Westminster pub just down the road and, in April, gained permission from borough planners for alterations, refurbishments and an extension to the first floor.
Club secretary Linda Cooper, a borough councillor for Whitby, said at the time: “I was ecstatic when the plans got through, these are very exciting times.
“This scheme will be helping revitalise a neglected area of the town.”
The private members’ club is run by a 16-strong committee, and not the Conservative Party.
