The project includes construction of 24 one-bedroom apartments, 36 two-bedroom apartments and three two-bed wheelchair friendly apartments along with landscaping works.

Alongside the new homes there will be a variety of facilities for residents including a bistro, event area, craft workshop, hair and beauty salon, wellbeing area and a snug.

Most of these additional facilities will also be open to members of the local community.
