DEVELOPERS have signaled their intention to seek planning permission for a project which would see the demolition of an “old shop in disrepair”.

Gold​star Homes 3 has published proposals for the redevelopment of a site of 0.14 hectares at the corner of Woodlawn Park.

Part of the plans would see the knocking of a single-storey vacant unit, formerly a general store, as well as other structures on the site.

In their place would be a purpose built housing scheme for older persons and persons with disabilities.

This would include 15 social housing apartments – six one-bed units and nine two-bed units as part of a three-storey complex.

The former general store has lain idle for a number of years, with Tidy Towns adjudicators describing it as being “in a sorry state.”

They also described it as “an old shop in disrepair”.
