boost to the area, reduce the need to travel to shop and provide a
mix of uses delivering an attractive location to live, work and

timber columns, together with larch timber clad side elevations. It

rainwater harvesting and low energy design.

seating and a specimen tree will delineate a walkway from Cathcart
Road through to the supermarket. An access road will be laid
through the site with all the buildings set back from the pavement
line by a landscaped buffer.

congestion and enhanced walking, cycling and public transport
facilities are proposed.
