Last chance to share your comments on the Abbey area regeneration

Whether you live in the area or just interested in the development, you can view and comment on proposals for phase two and three of the Abbey area project.

You’ll be able to view and make comments on the:

  • New building design proposals
  • Landscape proposals
  • Proposed parking changes, including Snowman and Casterbridge resident parking
  • New locations for the community centre, medical centre and Abbey co-op office

This will be your last opportunity to get involved and share your comments before we submit a planning application in August. The deadline to provide your comments is tomorrow (Thursday 30 July). You will also be able to formally respond to the planning application as part of the statutory planning process.

The whole development will deliver 241 new homes, with almost half of the space for affordable housing. There will also be a new community centre and health centre, as well as shops, commercial facilities and improvements to the open space.

The project is part of the Community Investment Programme, a 15 year plan to invest money in schools, homes and community facilities.
