Consultation on Holy Cross plan
Developers want to hear community’s view on proposal for extra care accommodation on the site
Developers McCarthy and Stone have acquired an interest at the Holy Cross site and will be inviting feedback from locals at a public exhibition to be held on Wednesday (August 10).
Planning permission has already been granted for Persimmon Homes to build a 200 house and a 74 room care home development there, but McCarthy and Stone’s redevelopment proposals include Extra Care accommodation instead of the traditional care home model.
While the plans are still in their early stages of development, developers want businesses, residents and interest groups to have their say. A spokesman said: “We are committed to engaging with the local community and will be offering residents the opportunity to meet with the project team to discuss the early proposals in the coming weeks.
“This will ensure residents and stakeholders can view and comment on the proposed plans and enable local people to speak with the team and provide feedback.
“We want to hear from the local community and our future home-owners before we submit planning application.
“We’ll be displaying our plans at a public exhibition and our project team will be there to answer questions and listen to feedback on what we have done so far.
“The comments we receive will help us tailor a our proposal into something people will want to see, enjoy and call home.
“We believe that Chalfont St Peter is an area where there is a local need for this type of accommodation.
“In addition, occupants typically looking to ease the burden of maintaining a large property would allow these homes to become available on the market.”
It will be held at Chalfont St Peter Parish Church Hall, Church Lane, from 3.30pm to 7pm.
