McCarthy and Stone have started to build the 32 retirement apartments in Church Road. This development is in an ideal location close to the shops, public transport, the Library and Swimming Pool. The buildings will be 2/3 storeys with parking, gardens and communal facilities. The apartments will be one and two bedrooms, we do not yet know the prices of these apartments.
We have contacted the Builders as building materials were being stacked over the root area of the Black Poplar tree in the Park, which could cause damage to the tree. The Planning consent was granted on Appeal, so our plans to slightly widen the footway to the car park, will depend upon the goodwill of McCarthy and Stone. The hedge has been cut back, which should help those walking along this footway..
