The proposal consists of two ground floor retail spaces with car parking to the rear servicing 10 apartments. Each apartment has 1 car parking space with additional space for bicycle parking. The proposal aims to promote sustainable public transport with bus and rail services provided within walking distance. Each apartment has private amenity space with closing panels to create a space which is usable throughout all the year. The material choice for the building is sympathetic to its surroundings and takes key features from the adjacent traditional red brick terrace. This site offers the opportunity to highlight a key corner while entering the area of Dunmurry and utilises the local park to create a better quality of life, whilst integrating the new building into the community.
