Dear fellow residents,
On Tuesday the planning committee will accept – or throw out – the development which is set to replace the crumbling former Swindon College site at Regent Circus.
Included in the plans are:
– A 9 screen cinema
– A Morrisons
– Bars and restaurants (meant to be ‘high end’ ones)
– Offices in the redbrick former College building
The architects watchdog has savaged the scheme for being architecturally not great.
My job is to represent you. So I am asking as many people as possible their views in advance of the planning committee.
Could you tell me which option you prefer?
Option 1 – It’s not a perfect scheme, but develop it now anyway.
Option 2 – Reject. Hold out for a better scheme. This may take 3-5 year or longer.
If you could let me know your views I would be grateful.
Councillor for Eastcott ward
PS – A number of residents are organising to lobby on behalf of the Gate Campaign to stop a night time access route through the site. If you’d like to find out more let me know and I will pass your details on.
