Barratt Homes presented their plans for the Felnex site on 24 November 2015.
For those of you who were unable to attend this event, please take time to have a look at their plans and feel free to make any comment below.
The intention is for reserved matters to be submitted to Sutton Council for the whole site as early as possible, and if approved, intend to have show homes on site by Autumn 2016.
Many people are interested in the supermarket provider, but until the site has planning approval, the provider will not sign. The plans are different from Phase I, which was approved on 25 June 2014. After objecting to the scale of the buildings in this planning application, we were delighted that Hackbridge had been given a reprieve with a new design for this area. Unfortunately this was quickly quashed after what appeared slightly better on plan, looked just as bulky and imposing as the last design!
Looking at the rest of the plan, which was not available during the Phase I application, it is apparent that no consideration has been given to the impact the design of the assisted living flats will have on the Victorian cottages on London Road, directly opposite. The overbearing design of the whole scheme will change the look and feel of Hackbridge forever.
We have written to Barratt Homes and are currently awaiting a response.
