The proposal provides seven light industrial units with all of the units broadly of a similar size to provide an attractive proposition for business start-ups, sole traders and trade counters.
The built form is set back from the road providing a forecourt area for servicing and parking with pedestrian and vehicular access adjacent to Kent Street.
A new access is proposed to allow vehicles to traverse one-way through the site and exit.
