Plans for a 116-apartment development on an east Belfast bonfire site will be unveiled at a public pre-planning event later this month.
The application for land at London Road and Lismore Road, if approved, will see the construction of 116 one, two and three bed apartments.
There will also be private and communal and parking provisions as part of the residential project, headed by developer DLL Properties.
It’s possible that the apartments may be available as social housing.
A spokesman for DLL said: “We are embarking on our statutory pre-application community consultation activity in relation to the much-needed regeneration of this brownfield site.
“There is high demand for high quality homes in this part of the city however no decision has yet been made regarding the final tenure of these homes.
“We look forward to engaging with local stakeholders via our community consultation activity prior to submitting a planning application later this year.”
A website has been created for the consultation. A statement on the website says: “Consideration has been given to creating variety within the development through the scale and positioning of residential blocks as well as the sequence of landscaped spaces within the site. Care has been taken to ensure the protection of existing and future residential amenity.”
The 1.2-acre site has been used over the years to host the Ravenhill area’s Eleventh Night bonfire.
In 2020 Belfast City Council sent in contractors to remove 1,800 tyres from the site.
The pre-application public event will be taking place on Zoom on October 27 at 6pm via www.londonroadconsultation.co.uk.
