A planning application (LA04/2015/0761/F) submitted in July 2015 proposes a “Childrens Daycare Centre and associated carparking and outside play area (temporary permission)” at Queen’s Road, Titanic Quarter. The site is located adjacent an existing two-storey office building.
The planning application submitted explains that the “facility is required to serve the development that has taken place so far and to add to the convenience of future development. It is anticipated that the facilities this building provides will be incorporated into future larger scale mixed use buildings within the overall master plan area. However this facility is needed now and as a bridge until such future regeneration takes place. Suggested time period 10 years.”
The centre is designed to accommodate just over 100 children and it is proposed that it will be operated by ‘Forward Thinking Childcare’.
The planning application (LA04/2015/0761/F) was refused permission in January 2017.
