This is only at consultation stage with a planning app likely in the spring. So a rough estimate would be that planning permission is given roughly this time next year or perhaps in 2018 if they have multiple rounds of consultation or it gets rejected and the architects have to modify the scheme.

Its being submitted before Xmas so could have permission by early summer so long as it doesn't frighten the usual mob.
