The Area Board received an interesting presentation from the Quantum Group architect setting out its plans for the site which has been derelict for many years.
The proposals, which are in very early stage, will provide extra care dwellings, with shops and restaurant servicing the new community. Being a conservation area they would take great care to restore listed features. They also recognised that the A36 Wilton Road is in close proximity and that air quality and access would be important issues.
Councillors and attendees on the night had questions about the provision of extra care being for age 55 and over and that the site will not have a mix of people of different generations.
