New Chattaway’s development to tower over Station Road?

The residents association aka David Felthouse has done some investigative work on the redevelopment of Chattaways site, named after its famous proprietor Michael Chattaway, who passed away last year. You may recall that the previous owner evicted viable businesses from the building in 2007, and left it empty to the delight of local rodents before demolishing it in 2010. The plan was to build a Sainsbury’s and numerous “executive apartments” offering stunning views of the bookies and underage drinkers, but this became a financial no-no and site has been in limbo since. More info can be found in the residents association newsflash including details about public consultations.
