Development Proposal

The proposed development features a three storey block of 6 residential units in semi-detached arrangement designed to provide key worker housing. The units are served by two external staircases to provide improved egress from a potential fire. The staircase to the south will be the location of integrated parcel boxes for mail deliveries. On ground there will be a main communal area leading to the enclosed cycle store and another providing a grass area for recreation. A communal refuse store will be provided within 10m of Park Tolvean road for collection.

All of the units would have two bedrooms each providing living accommodation for two people. Each bedroom has space for someone to study while the units have a shared open plan living, kitchen and dining areas and a bathroom.

The roof of the building would also be fitted with solar panels to generate electricity.
