Redevelopment of Coney Hall Landmark Moves a Step Closer

Proposals to redevelop the site currently occupied by Wickes have now been submitted to the Council as a formal planning application.

The plans, which will see the current Art Deco façade renovated and extended and the rear of the site redeveloped, will comprise flats, two new retail spaces and a unit for community use. After consultations with your local councillors, the scheme now includes the relocating and reopening of the public toilets.

There has been no indication yet when any development would commence, should it gain planning permission.

The developers had circulated their ideas locally late last year and the proposals, available here are now open to formal consultation with the Council accepting views from residents until at least 19th February.

  1. Sincerely hope the inclusion of trees and greenery will be a part of this. Strict plans to include eco friendly design features should be a requirement of the housing development.

    1. There’s a community space on the right of the central ‘tower’ but no specific use is yet planned (beyond the section reserved for the toilets). To be honest a library is unlikely.
