Key changes within the 2021 submission

1. Building Form

A new pentagonal form presents a more elegant profile on the skyline and relates to the geometry of adjacent streets.

2. More New Homes

The proposals have been refined to provide up to an extra 12 new homes across all tenures, with residential amenities open to all.

3. Retail/ Commercial Strategy

We have been working with commercial specialists to ensure the right mix of units types and sizes to offer maximum flexibility and mix of uses for the future.
