Planning permission granted for high-rise apartment block in Waterside
7 Mar 2019
Planning permission has been granted for a high-rise apartment block in the Waterside area of Derry. The planning committee of Derry City and Strabane Council has approved plans for the erection of a seven-storey residential building that will house 42 apartments at a vacant gap site at the corner of Duke Street and Fountain Hill. The 42 units will include 20 one-bedroom and 22 two-bedroom apartments and the application includes associated site works and the development of an amenity space. The site is located within the designated ‘Central Area’ and ‘Commercial Core’ as defined in the Derry Area Plan 2011. It is currently a vacant site (vacant) with no existing buildings and has been vacant for a number of years, bound by a public footpath along Duke Street and Fountain Hill with access to a multi-storey car park located immediately north of and adjacent to the sites boundary. The site is currently enclosed with timber hoarding along the footpaths at Duke Street and Fountain Hill. There is an existing concrete retaining wall north of the site which curves following the existing access to the multi-storey car park. An existing concrete wall is located at the rear of the site.
