A long-vacant police station in Gilford is to be given a new lease of life – as apartments.
The former RUC station at Castle Street in the village is subject to a planning application which would see much-needed accommodation being provided.
The proposals – being brought forward by the London-based Doherty Property Unit Trust – would see a total of eight apartments on the site of the police station.
This would comprise of four two-bedroom and four one-bedroom units.
The development will be constructed in the form of two blocks of apartments, with amenity space in between, and a one-way traffic system operating at the site.
Parking is also included.
It is understood the development would cost in the region of £300,000, according to CIS.
The application for a change of use from police station to apartments – which has been submitted to Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council – would also see the part removal of a wall.
And in addition to that, a fence and mast to the rear of the expansive site would also be dismantled and taken away.
The proposals will be brought back to planning committee with a recommendation in the coming months.
