RESIDENTS are invited to contribute to plans for luxury homes at a former Army headquarters in Chester.
Developer Redrow Homes is holding a ‘view and comment’ event at Queen’s Park High School where locals can have their say on the proposed development of the Western Command site in Queens Park.
The base in Queens Park Road, which played a major role in the Second World War, was later occupied by various banks.
The proposal is to build up to 33 bespoke premium homes in their place with an anticipated completion date of summer 2015.
Handbridge Community Forum has already been shown two lay-out options, with each showing some homes fronting Victoria Crescent and overlooking the river.
Victoria Murray, head of land and planning for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “We are seeking the views of the local community to help us shape our plans for this excellent location.
“We would very much value their feedback on what we believe will be an exceptional development of new homes.”
The company has appointed renowned architectural firm ADAM Architecture, known for their traditional style to design the scheme. Members of the public will also be able to review initial design concepts produced.
Redrow says its credentials for a scheme of this nature are strong, having previously created a number of high-end new homes developments across the UK.
The community consultation event takes place on April 18 at Queens Park High School from 4pm to 8pm. Following the event Redrow will look to bring forward a formal planning application in summer 2012.
