The house where Mick Philpott killed his six children by torching the property as they slept will be demolished, councillors have promised.
Derby City Council leader Paul Bayliss has confirmed the council's intention is to knock down the property and the adjoining semi.
The plan will be to consult the local community on what should replace the buildings.
An online petition has already been launched urging the local authority to install a memorial garden.
Mr Bayliss told the Derby Telegraph: "Who would want to live in a house where six children have died and why would you want to live next door to a house where six children have died?"
"It is the council's intention to bulldoze the properties but we need to go through a number of legal loopholes first."
