NewRiver Retail Seek To Have Three Floors Of Apartments Above Iceland
6th November 2019 |
NewRiver Retail are hoping to add even more residential units to their portfolio in Burgess Hill Town Centre with new plans to be submitted imminently to Mid Sussex District Council.
NewRiver own the freehold of 60-64 Church Walk which is currently home to Iceland.
The second floor had been touted as a possible location for a gym or offices, but neither materialised. The plan is to add a further 2 storeys to the building and have 15 apartments (3x1-bed, 12x2-bed).
In a letter to affected properties on Church Walk, NewRiver stated:
While the Iceland foodstore is considered to trade well, the accommodation at first floor is of poor quality, sits vacant and is no longer fit for purpose. In addition, the building itself is unattractive and adds little to the streetscene.
....The addition of further residential dwellings into this town centre location will add an additional, permanent residential population to Church Walk. By growing the number of people who live in Burgess Hill, this will help to support footfall within the town, adding to its strength and vitality as a retail and leisure centre.
We'll let you know when the planning application is added to the MSDC Planning Portal.
