An overall increase in the number of units form 408 to 526 with 59 out of the 118 extra units being affordable representing 46%. of the net additional residential units. The overall percentage will increase from 32 % to 35 %.
In summary the proposed mix of the development comprises:
478 new residential units in Bromyard House (consisting of 54 studio apartments, 177 x 1 bedroom apartments, 240 x 2 bedroom apartments, 7 x 3 bedroom apartments) and 15 live work units.
3 x three storey buildings to form 27 x 2 bedroom apartments
Three storey building in Third Avenue to form 21 x 3 bedroom units
330 car parking spaces
(No change to that previously approved):
5,635 sq m of retained office space on the first flour floors of the west wing of Bromyard House
4,659 sq m of office space in the three storey building (nearing completion)
50 parking spaces for retained offices and 71 parking spaces for new offices
As originally submitted, this revised scheme proposed a total of 570 residential units (171 affordable) together with 10,294 sq m of office space. The overall number of residential units has been reduced by 44 and the provision of affordable housing increased. There have been changes in the configuration of the internal layout of Bromyard House. There has been a reduction in the number of units proposed in Third Avenue resulting from a change in the mix. The proposed 6th floor roof addition has now been deleted and the design of the fifth floor addition revised to include a step back.
