Residential buildings are to the west of the site and a mixture of industrial and residential land to the north and south with retail/trade counters to the east. Fore Street has a range of local amenities and shops, around 800 metres to the west.

The site is currently occupied for use as a scaffolder’s storage yard. The site is accessed directly from Albany Road, although the entrance is currently blocked by a brick wall.

The southwestern boundary of the site meets Meridian Angel Primary School while the eastern boundary abuts the rear gardens of a number of terraced houses on Albany Road. There is an open boundary to the north of the site with concrete hardstanding and vegetation fronting on to Leopold Road.
