Plans have been submitted for a development outside Coleraine.
If successful, it would see 385 new properties built, most of them three and four bedrooms homes along with some new apartments.
The proposed development site is near Knockbraken Drive and Newbridge Road, close to Avonbrook Gardens North. The application was made by local architect GM Design Associates in tandem with a couple named McGrath, who live in the area and apparently own the land on which the new residences will be built.
GM Design Associates has a portfolio that includes such high-profile projects as Antrim’s Junction One, Coleraine campus at Ulster University, and a number of other major residential developments.
Plans were initially advanced for a similar housing scheme in 2013. They were approved, but work never began and permission has since lapsed.
In addition to residences of varying size and style, the application includes footpaths, landscaping, access roads, and a large public space.
It is the most recent major housing scheme to go through the planning process in recent months.
Last May it was confirmed that plans were in progress for a £100m development that would see 800 new homes built in Derry. This project will be one of the biggest private residential investments to appear in the north west since the property market crashed.
