A postal consultation for Thorngate Churcher Trust’s plans to create new homes for over 50s in Gosport ends today.
Thorngate chief executive said the consultation was carried out ahead of a planning application this spring and has sparked lots of interest with residents around the proposed site.
“We have already had a number of applications from people who are keen to live in the new development,” said chief executive Anne Taylor.
“There have also been a number of questions and comments on the proposed plans and we look forward to addressing these as part of our development process.”
The proposed new development would create up to 28 new homes in the borough on a site on the corner of Grove Road and Sealark Road in Gosport.
Anne said that Thorngate and its development team would be taking into consideration the comments made by local residents and incorporating as many of these as possible into the site ahead of a planning application.
“It was important for us to consult with the local residents before finalising plans for the new homes,” said Anne. “We have received some interesting comments and we are pleased to have had a number of applications from people keen to stay in this area but looking for low-cost community housing.”
Anne said the proposed development will meet rising demand from local people for modern, supported housing with communal facilities, set in landscaped grounds.
