Another ApartHotel for West Chesterton

We let you know of the plans for an Aparthotel at the junction of Gilbert Road and  Milton Road. Since then we have spoken to the developers about your concerns. Although there has been some movement, the final plan does not enhance the area.

The proposal is for:

  • 3 to 4 storey fronting on to Gilbert Road
  • A ‘feature’ corner
  • 133 apartments/ hotel rooms and 5 houses
  • 80 underground car parking spaces
  • Unsympathetic architecture

The Developers see “the junction ...as a point of transition from a suburban character to the city centre. The distinct character and scale of Gilbert Road requires a response that is of an appropriate scale and that is not visually over-dominant. “

We believe they have failed West Chesterton

Mike Sargeant spoke at the planning meeting which rejected the 1 Milton Road development. He would be very happy to speak on your behalf at the meeting which considers this application.

We’re sure we all regret we didn’t take on the developers over the Manor Care Home. It’s very good inside, but from the outside, it could be an office block anywhere.

 So  this is what we are being offered next:

This could include design, effect on roads and transport, density and mass as well as the lack of affordable housing. And let us know your views as well so we can represent you

Yes we need development in West Chesterton,

but we deserve better…….
