The Site is located at the intersection of Sewardstone Road and Waterloo Gardens. The Site is bounded to the north by the Regents Canal/Victoria Park and residential uses to all other boundaries. The Site is currently used as a community facility and includes a nursery known as Scallywags, a community garden, children’s playground and an outdoor ball court.
The development looks to redevelop the site, centred around the creation of a new and improved community building over two floors, comprising Scallywags nursery at ground floor and additional community floorspace at first floor. The redevelopment of the site also includes the re-provision of the ball court, the community garden, together with additional play spaces, a community orchard, a new civic square, and a new secured public canalside walkway.
Through more effective use of the 0.27ha Site, the development provides 14 self-contained flats, all in affordable tenure. The 14 units will be accommodated in 2, four-storey buildings, situated along the north/north western boundaries of the site.
The development is proposed to be delivered as car free, secured by legal agreement, with 1 x disabled parking bay as the only exception.
