PLANNING permission is being sought for a four-storey residential development in the West End of Greenock.
An application has been submitted for a new block to be built beside existing tenements at Kelly Street, near Union Street. There would be four one-bedroom flats.
The ground involved is described as being private with no public access or amenity value.
A design document submitted to planners by Nicholson McShane Architects states: “Our clients wish to intensify the use of their underused ground in a manner sympathetic to the historic nature of the surrounding area and to the wider environment.
“This modestly-scaled proposal will provide a positive contribution to the town centre fabric of Greenock whilst respecting the aims and aspirations of the Conservation Area.”
The application is pending assessment by Inverclyde Council officials.
