A PLANNING application has revealed more detail on a planned housing development on Irvine's Bank Street.

The Times reported in late June how proposals to convert a former office building on the street were set to go ahead next year.

And a planning application for the site, submitted on behalf of North Ayrshire Council, has now shown more details of what can be expected in the development.

The housing in Bank Street, alongside Howgate in Kilwinning, was on of two projects which were allocated £680,000 by the council in 2021.

It is planned that a block of three homes will be created at 36 Bank Street, including provision for rear garden grounds.

The plans also say each home will make use of the existing basement (though for storage only), ground floor and first floor.

All three of the properties will have two bedrooms, with each bedroom situated on the first floor.

There will be a timber wall at the rear of the three gardens, and two of the three properties will also have an additional fence and gate at the back of their outdoor area.

Each garden will also include a turfed area, a raised planter and a section of 'turfcrete'.

The plans were submitted to North Ayrshire Council on Friday, October 28, before they were validated on Tuesday, November 1.

They are currently pending consideration, and can be viewed in full on via the council's online planning portal, searching for reference 22/00844/PP.

It’s expected that if planning permission is approved, the project will go out to tender in early 2023, with construction taking place from mid 2023 for 12-18 months.

Completion is expected in summer 2024.

An application has been submitted to the Vacant and Derelict Land Investment Programme for £400,000 towards the Bank Street project which would enable it to be delivered to an enhanced energy standard.
