We received a letter through the door at the weekend from the managing agents for Bircherley Green Shopping Centre about their plans for redeveloping the area. Not sure how far reaching these letters went but have put the link below to the website they have set up.http://www.bircherleygreenregeneration.com
They are holding a Public Consultation outside Waitrose/Superdrug on Friday 29th August (2pm-7pm) and Saturday 30th August (10am-4pm). It is stated on the website that this consultation is a chance to give feedback before plans are submitted to the Council.
Now I'm all for redeveloping the area to improve the look & feel of the area and hopefully persuade Waitrose to remain in the area along with encouraging other retailers into the town. However, the thing which immediately concerns me is their plans to add over 100 homes (think it was around 140) into this area and from information within the letter, the majority of these would be flats above the anchor food store. Where would these new residents park was my first thought and that's before I have even gone on to think about schooling, increasing traffic, etc.
Will certainly be dropping by their stand on one of those days and hearing what they have to say on the matter!
