Public consultation on former leisure centre site

Public consultation on former leisure centre site

Posted: Fri, 20 Sep 2019 12:45 by Parish Council

Residents are invited to have a say on revised proposals for the old Leisure Centre Site, Coventry Road, Hinckley.

Hinckley and Bosworth residents are being invited to give their views on revised proposals for a residential regeneration scheme on the site of the old Leisure Centre, Coventry Road, Hinckley.

A consultation event will take place on Wednesday 2 October, 9.00am – 7.00pm at the Atkins Gallery, Lower Bond Street, Hinckley. More »

A representative from Derby-based Green 4 Architects said "Following our original application in 2018, we have taken on board both residents and Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council's comments and revised our plans for the site.

"Key changes include reducing the number of flats from 89 to 66; reducing the number of storeys from seven to four and the Trinity Vicarage Car Park is to be retained by reducing the number of houses from 17 to just 7.

"We have also made key changes to the parking provision from the original scheme with each house having 2 car parking spaces, and the 66 apartments spread over two four storey apartment blocks benefiting from allocated parking spaces.

"The total provision is now 76 parking spaces with 3 electric charging points in addition to the housing parking.

"However in order that everyone can clearly understand the changes and have the opportunity to review them we will be hosting a consultation event on Wednesday 2 October, 9.00am – 7.00pm at the Atkins Gallery, Lower Bond Street, Hinckley."

Members of the design team will be available between 5.00pm – 7.00pm and residents can ask questions as well as giving their views at the drop in session.

No appointment is necessary and everyone is welcome.

Anyone unable to attend can email info@green4architects.co.uk with any queries or comments or write to Green 4 Architects, The Barn, Ockbrook, Derbyshire, DE72 3RW. » Less
