The plans provide for the building of a terrace of six houses on the northern side of a westerly extension to Swallow Street. James Christie owned a number of properties in the area including dwellings on the south sideof Swallow Street at the junction with Bow Street.

The new properties are planned as mirrored pairs each with a small front garden, and shared steps up to the front doors. A covered passage between the third and fourth dwellings provies access to the rear of the properties.

Each dwelling comprises :
