DEVELOPMENT OF THE EASTMOOR SITE – UPDATE

Please find below an update from Advent Homes on the general situation following the consultation and specifically the work I have been doing with them to identify a new location for Adel Pharmacy.

This is not guaranteed but I wanted to update you as a number of residents have been asking about the future of the Pharmacy:

“In the last few days we have received several comments.   

Our consultation has now closed after 6 weeks and we are reviewing the comments which generally are overwhelmingly supportive.

I do appreciate the concerns of neighbours and genuinely we have sought to design a scheme which respects their position as well as maximising the distance between dwellings. 

Whilst I would hope the neighbours would appreciate this, [residents asked us to] intensify the use of Tile lane which, as you will appreciate, is unacceptable due to its narrow and unadopted status. 

Separately, I have now  met  with the Adel Pharmacy and believe we are hopeful to accommodate a new pharmacy building at the East Moor site, however, it is  not without complexity. “
