Former health building to become homes
2:22pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
A FORMER healthcare building is to be knocked down and replaced with flats, houses and bungalows.
The building in Archers Road in Southampton was built in 1987 for a chiropodist service although the service was relocated to Western hospital in 2009.
Now planners have granted permission for a scheme by Orchard Homes to knock the building down to make way for a block of ten two-bedroom flats in the front of the development, which has a part two-storey and part three-storey building.
The design is traditional, with projecting gables and bay window, to fit in the architectural style of the Bannister Park area.
At the back of the building there will be three two-storey houses and a bungalow.
Planners passed the scheme unanimously.
Committee chairman Coun-cillor Sue Blatchford said: “It’s a nicely designed scheme.”
