17/01586/FUL The demolition of the former police station, and the erection of two residential blocks comprising a total of 29 residential units (11x1bed, 14 x2 bed and 4×3 bed), with associated car parking and landscaping.
This application is welcomed as a major contribution to the fulfilment of the Upper High Street, Depot Road and Church Street Development Brief published in 2012. While the Society would have preferred an integrated development of the whole emergency services site, other parts remain in use, so this separate development is preferable to the plot remaining undeveloped indefinitely.
The Society asked for a number of detailed points to be taken into consideration, but overall supports this application, subject to reservations about the flint wall, car parking, affordable housing and the design.
