Newby are already on-site building the first 35 apartments, which have been granted planning permission, but the company has now submitted plans to create 27 more.
But reader, Joan Herrington, said: "why do all apartments have to be luxury".
Other readers, Neil Harper called for "some council houses" in the wake of the news, while Jem Henderson said: "or some normal non luxury flats".
Another reader, Tommy Deux, added: "How big is the waiting list for council housing again?" and Andy Pretty added: "Nice. Flats for rich people. Just what is needed."
