Our Involvement

Radius Housing had plans to create a new social and affordable housing development, consisting of 136 dwellings along with associated road infrastructure, landscaping and a children’s play park.

Radius Housing were one of several stakeholders working in partnership to deliver the ambitious regeneration masterplan for St Patrick's Barracks for which the Department for Communities obtained outline planning permission in March 2019. The masterplan aimed to turn the former army barracks to a flagship, shared neighbourhood, mixed use, housing-led regeneration scheme.

Issues Encountered

  • Amendments to designs
  • Time-sensitivity of approval 
  • Correspondence with statutory consultees such as DFI Roads

Gravis Planning worked with the project team on the St Patrick’s Barracks residential development proposal - including architects, Hall Black Douglas - from the beginning of the project’s design through to its approval at Council.

We held an online and remote public consultation process for the planning application. We also prepared the application itself and ensured its progress through the planning system, providing advice on a range of planning-related issues.

Planning permission was subsequently granted by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council's Planning Committee.
