News broke this morning that the Council owned housing company Goram Homes has plans to develop the two Grade II listed bonded warehouses on Spike Island into a new 200 home development. Details are currently scarce barring the fact that it will be a ‘mix’ of affordable and market value apartments developed as part of the ‘Western Harbour Regeneration Area’.
200 new apartments coming, but can the local infrastructure support it?
