Homes approval helps to boost regeneration

Planning permission has been granted for eight new properties close to Cheltenham train station.

Located on a disused site in Gloucester Road, the architects say the new properties are another step forward for the regeneration taking place in the area, which already benefits from a vibrant community of restaurants, shops, homes and a popular gym.

Planning was secured for the development by Gloucestershire-based architects Coombes:Everitt, who were also behind the design of the nearby Queens Road mixed use development which includes the Tesco metro, 14 flats and the Green Coffee Machine.

John Everitt, director of Coombes:Everitt, said: "This planning success is really positive for the continued regeneration of this area. It is the second development we have undertaken here.

"It's a really great location with lovely local shops and cafes, not to mention the great travel links or the fact that is only a stone's throw from Montpellier."

"Our design brings six flats and two houses into a location which was previously an unattractive part of the area. It is an underused brownfield site sat across from the train station and for new visitors to Cheltenham it wasn't a great first impression.

"The new building will help to act as a transition between the differing neighbouring buildings. It will be an attractive building which we hope will provide much needed housing, bring in more clientele for the local shops and cafes and help to improve the visual aspect of the area."
