New apartments planned facing Gloucester Docks
By Matt Hall | 28th June 2019
A derelict site adjacent to Gloucester Docks could become the site for a new housing development.
The Southgate Street site is the subject of a planning application submitted to Gloucester City Council.
Developers, Gloucester Regen Capital Ltd, wants to turn the former Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes Club (RAOB) at 87-91 Southgate Street into a 'mews-style' collection of apartments.
In close proximity to Gloucester Quays and next to the Whitesmith Arms, the site has remained vacant since 2014.
The application reveals plans to redevelop the site and build 14 residential flats, 20 per cent of which have been designated as affordable social housing.
The accommodation would be made up of 10 one-bed and four two-bed flats.
According to the plans "it is the intention of the applicant to develop the site for 100 per cent occupation by social housing provider".
The developers behind the project said: "The proposals will be delivered following demolition of the existing buildings, which are in a severely dilapidated condition.
"The scheme design reflects the aspirations for a successful development that integrates into, and enhances, the setting of the existing area."
