Town centre flats would be “mediocre” says objector

3

A MAJOR plan to demolish a disused roller skating rink at Warrington and replace it with an apartment block providing 144 dwellings is to be put to planning chiefs for a second time.
The building – formerly a Kwiksave supermarket in Academy Street – would make way for a mix of one and two-bed apartments, together with ancillary accommodation and car parking.
Part of the ground floor would be used for retailing.
Members of the borough’s development management committee deferred a decision two months ago after some councillors expressed disappointment the scheme did not include provision for affordable home.
Two letters of objection have been received claiming the appearance of the building would be mediocre, with no architectural merit, that it would be incongruous in its surroundings and would have a detrimental impact on an area of architectural and historic interest.
All the flats would be for rent – but there is no provision for affordable homes.
Officers say the building would be acceptable in the area and are still recommending the scheme be approved.

  1. Because of cause the old KwikSave building isn’t mediocre, has plenty of architectural merit, and is in no way incongruous in its surroundings…. Some people need to get a life and accept progress!
