I have now had a short update from Officers, which in precis is:
- The proposed developer has now concluded their pre-application discussions with Planning Officers which has resulted in a broadly acceptable scheme for the building of 8 apartments for the over 55’s.
- This scheme is considerably smaller than the original development that was proposed and has significant amendments to its external appearance to more closely match the surrounding architecture of the Conservation Area.
- The changes have meant that the terms of the sale have been re-negotiated and these are currently being considered by the Council
- It is anticipated that the Developer will soon be in a position to commence site investigations leading to submission of a formal planning application.
As soon as I get any further information I will post it here.
