The public will be given their chance to have their say on the ‘proposed erection of a purpose-built managed student accommodation (comprising clusters and studios) including landscaped courtyard and roof terraces, and all other associated site and access works’ on lands at 128 to 136 Strand Road.

The consultancy point out that the event does not relate to a live planning application and that representations should not be made to Derry City & Strabane District Council.

The development, if it does eventually go ahead, will take place on a 0.76 acre site on the Strand Road bounded by Rock Mills, Modern Tyres and McFarland Quay.

It is located on a busy section of the lower Strand Road close to its junction with the Rock Road and opposite Moran’s Centra and the Coppin House student accommodation block.

The site was for years the location of the Mandarin Palace prior to its move to Queen’s Quay.
