The land, approximately 595 square metres, borders Rowan Avenue and backs onto The Grange primary school play ground.

A statement from Community Gateway said: “There is an excellent opportunity to make best use of an under-utilised brownfield site, in a sustainable location and build much needed new residential accommodation in keeping with and contributing towards the sustainable viability of the area.”
