Daniel Roberts, Senior Development Manager at Glenbrook, said: “This new planning application represents an excellent opportunity to take the site forward and create a new, highly sustainable BTR community in close proximity to one of the UK’s most vibrant city centres.

"Located on the waterfront, the site’s potential from a public realm perspective is huge and is an area we have focused on in our proposals with over 50% of the site dedicated to landscape, including a new riverside park, cycleways and access to the waterfront.

“Subject to a positive outcome, we will look to appoint a contractor in the summer with a projected start on site for Q3 2022.”
