Revised plans for a new block of flats in Bournemouth are the focus of a public exhibition on Monday, 27 November, 2017.
The proposed scheme is a five-to-six-storey building of 44 apartments at Durley Road to the west of the town centre. There is a mix of one, two and three-bedroom flats plus residents’ parking.
The homes will be for market sale and aimed at first-time buyers, young professionals, downsizers and families.
The site, currently a surface car park, has been designated for residential use in Bournemouth Council’s Area Action Plan for several years.
It is being brought forward by the Bournemouth Development Company, a joint venture between the Council and Morgan Sindall Investments.
A previous application for conditional planning permission was turned down in summer 2017 on grounds of design and loss of parking.
Since then, work has been under way on a fresh proposal incorporating changes to architectural features and articulating a comprehensive range of parking mitigation measures and alternative transport solutions in response to concerns raised previously.
The public exhibition takes place just a short distance from the car park itself, at the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth West Cliff, Durley Chine Road, Bournemouth, BH2 5JS, on Monday, 27 November, 2017, from 2pm to 8pm.
Members of the project team, including architects and consultants in transport planning, will be on hand to explain how the proposal has evolved since the summer and answer any questions.
