A FORMER Southampton nightclub and bar is to make way for a seven-storey block of flats and ten houses after a developer plan won planning permission.

The boarded-up New York New York nightclub and McClusky’s bar in Queensway, Southampton, will now be swept away as part of the city council’s masterplan to regenerate the city centre.

In their place, 44 affordable homes will be built in a bid to transform a rundown area and bring more families into the city centre.

Plans include a terrace of seven town houses plus three two-storey mews houses on Brunswick Square.

The block of 34 apartments will be built on the corner of Queensway and Briton Street with a commercial unit on the bottom for a restaurant, shop or office. Roof terraces, gardens and balconies are featured throughout the scheme.

Planning committee chairman Cllr Sue Blatchford said: “I welcome the redevelopment of an absolute eyesore in Queensway. “I think the nature of the proposal is interesting, offering a nice mix of private amenities, space with the balconies. I look forward to this being carried out.”

Committee member Cllr Dave Shields said: “It is good to see houses and a bit more of a social mix. I feel at the moment the area lacks soul and that is a reflection of so few families living there.”

The project is being spearheaded by Raglan Housing Association and TAB Projects as part of a wider city centre masterplan, which aims to transform rundown areas over the next 20 years bringing more than 24,000 new jobs, 5,000 new homes and investment worth £3bn.

Raglan regional development manager Nathan Cronk said: “We are looking forward to providing family homes in the city centre. “It is very exciting and a bit different from the norm. We believe this will be a catalyst for developing other sections of Queensway and the Fruit Market opposite.”

The nightclubs closed six years ago when councillors refused to renew the licences because of a lack of a plan to address crime fears. Attempts to reopen the site as a 1,400-capacity superclub were also rejected.

Wtf is wrong with people? The area in question is dead space and an eye sore to boot.
I'd sooner the ground was used for affordable housing rather than some overly expensive apartments or luxury office space. Better to have families living in the area, we protest when a green-belt bit of land is threatened but this has got to be for the good not bad.
As for being an overspill area from Holyrood, so what! Wherever you happen to live there will always be the few who are @rseholes, but the majority are not!
For me it's a step forward, as for an ice-rink I can't see it being top of the list of priorities for most if not all!

why not make this all houses?
Surely if you want to bring families into the city a house is what you need not flats?
flats are the best way for a developer to make a huge profit from a little piece of land where's the car park going?

If you read the article you might have noticed that the development includes 10 houses that would be ideally suited for family use. I hope that this approach will be replicated in the redevelopment of the nearby fruit and vegetable market site in order to promote more sustainable inner city communities. It's high time we reversed the buy-to-let mania that seems to have gripped developers in this part of town over the past decade virtually unchecked by previous Council administrations.

Maine I'm only asking why not houses?
Wasn't this going to be redeveloped as part of the indoor fruit & Market under a Tory scheme?
If this is a separate development I'll give this Labour council credit for it but after seeing the rest of Below Bar & the development allowed by previous Labour councils surely they've learnt by now it's not more flats that families need it's houses & if possible do away with the flats & make it wholly (totally) houses!
I'm to old to worry about night clubs but I did ask if this would give 18+ adults less places to go & would not a new night club venue be better?
But I was torn to shreds over that.
Looking at the site to put ten houses & a block of flats where is the parking spaces for these flats?
I lived in town I love living in town & would if my wife would move back to town.
Look Well done Labour could you please make this all houses Thank You is that better?

It comes down to the time required for the artist to do the impression of the proposed development and a block of flats is quicker to illustrate than multiple house. Hope that helps.

London probably has a hundred fruit and veg markets, along with enough culture, entertainment and nightlife to keep you busy for years. Aside from a handful of decent restaurants, Southampton has absolutely nothing going for it in terms of culture or nightlife. Mediocre ideas for a mediocre city.

Surely if you want to bring families into the city a house is what you need not flats? flats are the best way for a developer to make a huge profit from a little piece of land where's the car park going?[/p][/quote]Indoor fruit and veg market? Southampton thinking big as always..[/p][/quote]It was going to be as big as the London one but then it can't be that good after all it's good enough for London sop it must be rubbish yes?[/p][/quote]London probably has a hundred fruit and veg markets, along with enough culture, entertainment and nightlife to keep you busy for years. Aside from a handful of decent restaurants, Southampton has absolutely nothing going for it in terms of culture or nightlife. Mediocre ideas for a mediocre city.[/p][/quote]So you don't frequent the Mayflower,Nuffield or the Guildhall then? As for culture aren't we building/built a Cultural sector? Haven't we got the 2nd largest Art collection in the country? on Culture your so very wrong! If you like classical Get a copy of the Bournemouth Orchestras out door events & you'll be able to do last night of the proms at Broadlands. The Rose Bowl holds concerts as does both the Guildhall & the Mayflower. The Joiners did live music but not enough turned up to watch it. Theres another club or was another where the Polygon Hotel was. There are several in bevois Valley So exactly what type of night life are you after? If it's good time girls try Derby Rd[/p][/quote]All fine if you like to call it a night at 10pm. kingnotail

Troll? why the slagging off? I've an absolute contempt for destroyers/developer

s & I hate the way Houses/Bungalows are being demolished for block after block of Flats .
I couldn't give a **** who's in power but I'd rather Houses were built not more B++ody flats.
I take an interest in this city so I look at the articles in this paper & put my point of view in posts now what right have you to call me anything ?
This Kingnotail has constantly slated this city they have said how they hate living here yet you stick up for him & call me names?
Where are you from Portsmouth?
No No No,It wasn't aimed at you Loose,it was aimed at you! It was aimed at the Southampton hater that is Kingnotail,he slags every article about Southampton,I am a Sotonian through and through...apologies for any confusion.

I apologise for saying you were from Portsmouth.
I'm 55-56 (1month to go) & I bet I could find night life in this city to please all tastes.
I'll admit more places should cater for the over 30's.
I went to the Delta Belle when it was a large pub & they had a Jazz week & it was packed with all ages & no trouble.
I use to go to Gary Todds mod nights( second Generation) to listen to the music & we had all age groups & it was Northern Soul & other 60's style music.
Not a lot of women & absolutely no trouble.
I also go/use to go to out door Classical concerts & again all types & absolutely no trouble.
Kingnotail says there's nothing to do & he hates this city?
So exactly what type of work does he do? If he hates it that much why not find a similar job back in his home town?
Anyway 100%HANTSBOY MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

If it wasn't crap I wouldn't slag it off. But the fact stands that in the whole of the UK, I've never been anywhere as terminally dire as Southampton.
