The plans say: "The proposal is a three storey building to St Michael's Road, with a fourth floor set within the roofslope, whilst to the rear, two additional below ground floors are proposed, taking advantage of the changing ground levels."

Associated refuse, cycle and general storage plus 'external amenity space' is included within the scheme but the building will be car-free.
