Revised Plan for High Street Block Ups Height to Eight Storeys
96 affordable units to be built but post office, Nat West and Akash to go
A planning application (P/2017/3946) has been submitted for the development of up to 96 affordable homes plus retail on the ground floor of plot D, to the west of Catherine Wheel Road.
The outline permission already granted was for 80 units, 72 car parking spaces, retention of the existing shop frontage and a maximum height of seven storeys.
The new application adds 16 units, reduces parking spaces to 18, demolishes the existing NatWest and Post Office shop frontage that it was proposed to retain, increases the height to 8 storeys and proposes to include Akash Electronics shop within the site layout. Akash is already included in the Compulsory Purchase Order.
The demolition of shop frontage means that the pavement can be widened. It has been suggested that the frontage could be taken down and moved back to allow wider pavement.
The housing mix will be 15 x 1bed, 38 x 2 beds, 34 x 3 beds and 9 x 4 beds, all to be at London Affordable Rents.
