Access is always going to be a problem with that Nemo site. The alternatives to what was proposed are to put the access between the Cross Douglas Road and Bellair juncions of the Douglas Road (through the FCA site probably), but that leads to three junctions in quick succession on the road, to do a deal with the Southern Health Board and get some of the St Finbarr’s site for access or to access from the South Douglas Road (probably the most likely now).

Anyone have details of what was actually in the plans? 82 houses and 20 apartments sounds quite low density for such a large and central site. I don’t suppose the houses were three storey. It’s the only way to get a decent size house onto some of the plots nowadays. It’s ironic that there were loads built in the 19th century and you scarcely see any now. Maybe they count as high rise…
