Forays have advised that they are organising a public consultation for sometime in July, regarding their proposal for a 60 bedroom luxury care home, which will employ around 65 staff, most of which they expect to be from the local area. Date, time and venue for the consultation event is to be advised.
See attached letter sent to WEAG webmaster.
Please be assured that no meeting between WEAG committee members and the developer has currently been scheduled prior to the public consultation.
Previously known information
Trees have been felled, and the site has been proposed as potentially suitable for development as a residential care home. See the attached letter from the new owners, Forays.
As some time has elapsed since this letter was sent to neighbouring residents, we have checked with Forays, who have confirmed that they are still in discussions with a luxury care home provider, but are open to suggestions and discussions with local residents, although they are somewhat restricted in what they can build, due to the site’s proximity to the SPA.
The attached photographs show one aspect of the site before and after clearance.
Residents are encouraged to put forward suggestions for possible development of the site, either using the comments section of this page, or by contacting WEAG by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
