Where is the planning application for?
291 Hills Road, the house on the north-east corner of the Long Road crossroads.
What does the site look like?
The large detached house is about a hundred years old, on a relatively large plot. It is hidden behind trees and vegetation…
…but here’s what it looks like…
What do they want to do?
Almost inevitably, demolish the house and replace it with flats. The planning application comes from Gibson Developments Ltd, the same people who are demolishing the houses just a few yards away at 3 and 5 Queen Edith’s Way and replacing them with six new houses across the two plots.
What will the flats look like?
The plan is for the new property to have 15 one- and two-bedroomed flats in two blocks. The entrance to the plot would move from Hills Road around the corner into Queen Edith’s Way. About half of the 25-30 trees on the plot would be removed. There would be parking for 15 cars, mainly in a basement.
The Hills Road Area Residents Association & Queen Edith’s Way Residents Association have jointly produced a statement on the development. You can read it here.
