What do you think?
Many Henbury residents will have visited the presentation today at Flora, and we'd love to know what you think of the proposals?
Parish Councillor Richard Slater had this to say....
"A very well presented consultation at Flora today, by Broadgrove on behalf of local builders Hall & Co.
The Broadgrove team provided lots of information relating to the development, which has many benefits, and opportunities to bolster the local community feel of Henbury. The team were open, and a breath of fresh air compared to other consultations held in the village regarding the Greenbelt.
Representatives from Henbury Parish Council attended, and asked many questions, and indeed made some strong points regarding access to the houses via Pepper Street, which will cause a number of issues, such as width of the road, icy conditions in winter, and a restricted vision to exit on to Chelford Road.
Overall, it's a good start, but clearly a cautious start."
An interesting part of the proposal is the FarmFolk concept.
The proposals include 3,034sqft (282sqm) of mixed-use commercial space within a new linear building positioned at the south of the site adjacent to Chelford Road. The existing Flora Gift Shop will be retained and consolidated within the new building which will also provide a food hall, stalls for local independent vendors and communal dining.
The other side of the commercial building will provide flexible private offices, bookable meeting rooms and co-working spaces. Hall and Co recently opened ProFolk at Bank Chambers in Stockport which provides collaborative and co-working office and event space. The applicant intends to take these principles and apply them to a rural setting under their new FarmFolk brand.
The existing access to Chelford Road will be retained and 45 spaces will be provided for the sole use of the commercial unit.
