BRIARS HEY APPLICATIONS WITHDRAWNAfter much speculation and strong feelings, the two original applications by Raphael Healthcare, P/2007/1262 and P/2007/1263 have been withdrawn. Briefly, the applications were:
1./ Demolition and replace secure unit, demolition and replacements of extension of listed building. New 2 storey detached HMO property, refurbishment of listed building to provide discharge units and office accommodation.
2./ New build 20 bed medium secure unit in the location of the existing medium secure unit, which is to be demolished. New build 40 bed low secure unit attached to existing Grade II listed property. New build detached 2 storey unit.
We understand that alternative applications will be submitted with a reduced outline footprint, possibly to accommodate about 50% of the original application.
The consultation process will, of course, start again and all interested parties should be able to make their feelings known.
We will post further information when it becomes available.
