Demolition and Development Today
The FairAcres Phase 2 demolition continues. A small corner of building is all that remains of the original 1970s retail park.

Piles of rubble from the demolition are awaiting reuse in the 2020s retail park. The new shops will include a Lidl, and should be around for another 50 years, if things go well, before retail parks become outdated.

The new retirement development on Ock Street is taking shape, and the rafters have been added. The development will comprise 39 privately owned self-contained apartments for the over 60s.

The buildings seem to take every inch of space around the perimeter. At the centre will be a green space.

    Work began on the Churchill retirement complex aboutthe same time the towns 10 bike racks in High street got flattened by a rogue vehicle that ran them over, 5 months on and the roof is going on the Ock st build, but still no sign of the replacement bike racks?

    “The buildings seem to take every inch of space around the perimeter. At the centre will be a green space.”

    Without a search for the relevant planning approval, where will the 39+ occupants’ cars go ?

    More empty private retirement homes is just what’s needed!

    Anyone heard any news about who will be filling the other units next to the new Lidl yet?
