This brings the following variations to the original option:
- It brings the amenity open space to sit between the two main development block areas-creating an integrated commercial block to the north;
- the northern block is now terminated by a new Community use - a commercial creche / nursery, with a new high quality play space alongside;
- the southern block is now composed of a variety of new and affordable ‘residential units’- comprising starter and family homes, retirement/assisted living blocks and a care home facility.
