02/11/2008 - Menday application to turn Greens Hotel into Closed Care Apartments and Nursing Home

Mr Menday has submitted a new application in respect of converting and extending Greens Hotel in Woburn Sands to a Care Apartment and Nursing Home complex. The changes to the original application are minimal. In addition Mr Menday has appealed the refusal of his original application. See previous news items and representation in the document libary.

The society has made representation on the new application and the appeal (see document library under Greens Hotel, as it remains opposed to this development and loss of amenity/recreational space in Woburn Sands. Deadline for individual representation on the new application to Alan Mills at MKC is the 7th November.
