The intention is to redevelop the site of Beaverhall House as housing. Included in the project will be affordable homes, private amenity and open space, and cultural/arts workspace/commercial space.
Two digital interactive consultation events will be held, one of them between 3pm and 7pm on 28 September (the other still to be confirmed).
They will be accessible at www.beaverhallhouse.co.uk, as will (from 21 September) further information and an online questionnaire/feedback form.
This news comes as no surprise to locals. In principle, Spurtle welcomes it, not least for its reprovision of culture and arts space. Whether this matches or betters what is currently available there in terms of square footage and rent level remains to be seen.
And, of course, there is the vexed issue of how affordable ‘affordable housing’ will actually be.
