The scheme will include 28 one bedroom, 25 two bedroom and five three bedroom apartments designed to a high specification throughout.The ground floor apartments will each have their own garden and additional communal outside space is included, which will be landscaped with trees to enhance biodiversity. All the homes have a flexible layout and will include workspace areas, with the larger apartments each having an office, reflecting the increase in home working.
