On Thursday Dave Hockey and Claire Young attended the drop-in to look at Merlin's plans for the Newlands Avenue and Coalville Road garage site redevelopments.
Dave Hockey said, "I was very impressed with the plans for the replacement properties, especially the fact they met the lifetime homes standard, enabling people who develop disabilities to stay in their homes. They all have flat access from the street, provision for lifts to be fitted if and when they're needed and several of them have wetrooms."
Claire Young said, "The Coalville Road garage redevelopment is at a much earlier stage. The proposals showed two two-bedroom bungalows and a two storey building containing two one-bedroom flats. It was useful to talk with residents about their views and I await further information on the plans with interest."
