"Woolworths" Old Shop - Redevelopment Could Take Two Years

Building work has begun on the former Woolworths store in High Street South. Work could take a couple of years.

The application by Blackstone Property Limited was to demolish the former building, and replace with retail space at ground floor, and 3 storeys of flats.

In all 16 one bedroom flats, 10 two bedroom flats, 6 parking spaces, and a new retail area of 125 square metres will be provided.

Access gates will be provided onto Church Walk for the residents. One of the reasons the application took so long to be dealt with was that the CBC planning department had concerns with access to light.

The application is CB/14/04720.
