The Scotsman Group has submitted an application for Planning Permission in Principle for the southern section of the Madras College Kilrymont site. Scotia Homes has previously submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) to the Council for housing onthe Northern end of the site which was approved in November last year. A PoAN is not a planning application but a notice to the Council advising of how the developer intends to engage with the community about their proposal.
Scotsman Group; Purple: accommodation for 280 students; Light Blue: sixty 2 bed flats; Light Green: deli / restaurant Orange: assembly / leisure.
Scotia Homes; White: 2 apartment blocks of 3 storeys plus penthouse
The Scotia development will provide 100 housing units, a mix of houses – 30 of which are designated ‘affordable’ – and apartments.
Together with accommodation for 681 students at Albany Park and 148 in the North Haugh’s ‘Gap Site 3’, both of which are joint developments between the University and private sector and have already received planning permission, the proposal by the Scotsman Group, if approved, would bring the total amount of student accommodation in the pipeline to 1109 places.
