The Bowbridge site is a former petrol station and café which has been in decline for a number of years.
The plans to redevelop the site include the demolition of the existing bungalow, café, petrol station and garage and the proposed plans are for the construction of a new garage and 22 new homes.
The master plan has been developed to maximise the potential of the brownfield site in a ‘farm building’ style. The proposed new houses will be a mixture of two and three storey detached, semi-detached and terraced houses, offering accommodation with a mixture of 3, 4 and 5 bedrooms.
Extensive consultations have been undertaken including geo-tech, heritage, Landscape visual impact and ecological surveys to fully consider the impact of the creation of the 22 new homes and MOT service garage.
A decision from the local authority planning department is expected mid-2018.
