Now, the appeals board has granted planning permission to the Pembroke Partnership for 44 apartments in three three-to-four storey apartment blocks. The applicants stated that the design approach is respectful of the site’s history and the structures of significance on site and the new development will successfully relate and integrate with those structures and the surrounding area.

McCormack found that the proposed development “is located within a culturally sensitive site and to this end the applicant has made significant efforts to acknowledge the sensitivity of the site and to record its history for posterity”. She stated that the site has been vacant for 13 years and can no longer function with its original use, proposing a new function is inevitable in order to develop the site.

Endorsing McCormack’s recommendation to grant planning permission, the appeals board has given the plan the go-ahead after finding that the proposal would provide for a strong and architecturally appropriate building on this site.
