The proposed development of the old Cobham site on Brook Road has been given the go ahead after agreement was reached on the plans.

Thirty-two private and ten affordable four bedroom houses, forty-eight and twenty-six three bedroom houses, thirty-two private and twenty-two affordable two bedroom apartments and sixteen affordable one bed bedroom apartments are planned to be built, with the affordable properties being of the same design as the ones available on the open market. That is one hundred and eight-six homes in total seventy-four of which will be affordable.

The development will also provide gardens, open space and children's play areas, with landscaping being an important part of the scheme. Parking will also be provided to ensure residents won't park on the roads.

The only concern expressed was to the entries and exits to the development with some councillors concerned residents would Hardy Crescent rather than Brook Road.

It's great to know our fantastic town will be growing and welcoming a significant number of new residents sometime in the near future. It's even better news parts of the concrete jungle of the Cobham's site will be landscaped into nice open spaces the new residents can enjoy, which will make the area more welcoming.
