Local community invited to respond to development designs for the Grange

Residents and regular visitors to the Grange estate are invited to give their views on plans for homes, shops and community areas at www.pelicanway.co.uk

Housing association, settle owns much of the property on the Grange estate and confirmed in November last year that it will work with the local community to get their views on where they think investment is needed to some of the properties around Pelican Way.

Since November, a number of discussions have been held with tenants, leaseholders, shop-keepers and other members of the community. Proposed plans and visuals which included homes and shops at Middlefield Court, The Parade and Langleigh and Reynolds House retirement living schemes have recently been displayed. Over 100 people attended two open days at Reynolds House retirement scheme in Pelican Way and everyone is now able to view and comment on the plans in the online exhibition.

Penny Metcalfe, executive director of development at settle said: “We’re committed to creating great places to live, together with the local community. We’re very pleased to have heard from many local people and encourage anyone who wasn’t able to attend the open days to visit our online exhibition and give us their feedback now. We’ll continue to hear from residents and visitors as we progress investment plans for this neighbourhood. ”

A planning application will be submitted by the end of this year, with an anticipated start date of Autumn 2023.
