This scheme provides private amenity spaces for all units. West facing balconies for flats and gardens for houses. There are pedestrian routes with small gardens and places for sitting that connect all of the dwellings. A linear garden communal runs along the rivers edge.
This is a site with a complex planning history. In 2008 a scheme proposing 46 new dwellings on the site was approved and in 2013 a different scheme proposing 45 apartments was also approved. Both schemes were deemed un-viable, and subsequently a nationwide architectural design competition was held for a new proposal on the site, which Mikhail Riches won in April 2017. Following a series of pre-application advice meetings, full planning consent was granted at committee in December 2017.
