What do you wish to do?: Make a general observation

 

Please make your comments: The redevelopment of the site for residential purposes is to be welcomed and 

this is also consistent with the pattern of recent developments in the locality. The use of a terraced built form is 

entirely appropriate. The design and elevational treatment is contemporary but respective of local building 

traditions - subject to suitable choice of materials and finishes.

 

We make two points which require assessment. The first is the impact on the local townscape when viewed from 

the west of the apartment block which is in an elevated position vis-à-vis the Silk Road and viewpoints within the 

town centre to the west. The second is that the parking and circulation space for the 4 apartment units is very 

constrained and could give rise to pedestrian/vehicular conflict, particularly during parking and turning 

movements.
