There have been delays to granting outline planning permission for Wing, and it will possibly be mid 2015 before permission is granted, owing to viability calculations and S106 negotiations.
District Councillor Robert Turner and the planning officer pointed out that the work associated with a brownfield site and the relocation of existing businesses both add significantly to the costs of developing the site. This in turn affects the viability and may reduce the proportion of affordable homes that can be built to below the 40% that was included in the original outline application.
As a separate project, Marshall’s is considering the addition of an ice-skating rink close to the Park and Ride site, having been approached by a third party who have been looking for a site for some time.
