08/07/2013 - Greens Hotel new application

A new application has been published for consultation for Greens Hotel site by Connolly Homes Ltd, who have or are in the process of purchsing the site. As you will recall, permission was given on appeal way back in 2008/9 to convert and extend Greens Hotel to a mixture of dependant nursing home beds and close care beds conditional on the relocation of the Bowls Club to Aspley Guise. This was bitterly opposed by Woburn Sands Town Council and all in the area.

Connolly Homes Ltd now propose to convert the existing permitted planning application for the hotel with extension and the wider site into 29 apartments ,and 6 cottage type houses for the over 55s. The bowls club would still move to Aspley Guise, but the tennis courts would be incorporated into what is basically a gated community for the over 55s aimed at those wishing to downsize. Local unspecified community facilities would be incorporated into the ground floor of the new development. The public car park would be unaffected.

Whilst this is an improvement on the nursing home permitted development in terms of mass and cramming we still have concerns. Details of the applicaton can be found on the MKC planning application site under planning application number 13/01117/FUL. The Society's response can be found in the Document and Representation library under Greens Hotel

Areas Covered include: Woburn Sands, Aspley Guise, Aspley Heath, the Brickhills, Husborne Crawley, Salford, Wavendon and Woburn
