Salvage mission: Plans to convert Waterford store into homes back on track
Plans to convert the site of a Waterford city store into a new housing estate are back on track after the developers addressed the local authority’s queries over the site.
Liam Neville Developments Ltd had originally requested planning permission for their plans to build 14 homes and a commercial unit on the site of the former Salvage Shop at Bounds Court on the Airport Road last December.
After examining the plans, Waterford City and County Council returned to the developer with some questions about the maximizing the use of the .45 hectare site, the water treatment on the site, the parking on the development and also the road-width within the development.
Now the developers have addressed all the council’s queries and have lodged revised plans which include to provision of an extra residential unit on the site, bringing the development up to 16 units.
Under the plans, 15 residential units are to be built. These consist of four two-storey, three bed semi-detached units, a two-storey block comprising two one-bed bed units at first floor and commercial unit at ground floor level, and a three-storey block comprising four one- bed units at ground floor and 5 two-bed duplex units.
A decision on the plans is expected from the council in the first week of June.
