I attended the exhibition for the proposals today and learn that 33 apartments with a day time concierge and 34 parking spaces is being suggested. The development would be a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom flats and plans show a pleasant central garden area.
The building will be a reasonable 2 storeys high closest to homes on Horsell Moor but this will be stepped up to a massive 5 storeys facing the cricket green. This is explained as fitting in with other industrial units nearby.
Well here is Jewsons next door. Nowhere near 5 storeys high.
Then there is LA Fitness. Again nowhere close to 5 storeys high.
You have go up to Victoria Way and look at Century Court, the flats facing the town centre, to find a 5 storey high development.
Five storeys will be vastly out of keeping with the houses and other buildings nearby. Allowing a developer to build so high could create a precedent for future developments in Horsell.
