The development is being planned for behind the Ocean Kinetics headquarters.
VACANT land around the Nesting Scrapstore could be transformed into a series of Polycrubs and allotments if new plans come to fruition.
The Nesting Community Development Company also hopes to create more parking spaces around the back of the scrapstore and install an electric vehicle charger at the front.
A change of use planning application has now been submitted to the council.

Plantiecrub has consent to create 12 parking spaces.
