A planning application has been submitted for a part five-storey and part six-storey building with 17 one-bedroom flats, one two-bedroom and one studio flat on the site once occupied by the Community Shop and offices (Pure in the above illustration). The application number is 183569FUL and more information is available on the Council’s website.
At some point we expect to see an application come forward to redevelop Chignell Place. The owners have taken possession of most of the shops and cafes in this once notorious cul-de-sac. This will almost complete the redevelopment of this run from Chignell Place to the Diamond Hotel. Then development across the road above the empty site where the Polish supermarket used to be is likely soon.
