The site is accessed off the Comet Way and is relatively ﬂat and rectangular in shape. There are screening mature trees on the site boundary. The site is currently occupied by a two storey building formerly operating as Beales Hotel which has been closed due to economical downturn during Covid pandemic. It is currently occupied temporarily as a hostel by YMCA
The development would be arranged around two internal pocket courtyards with a variety of height and nature of spaces throughout. A contemporary architectural style with high quality detailing will beneﬁt the existing street scene with respectful yet uncompromising design.
Overall this sustainable scheme will deliver 145 new energy efﬁcient dwellings including large family homes on a brownﬁeld site which will create a green, safe and attractive addition to Comet Way streetscape to support the diverse local community.
