Headley Court Mansion site (edged red)
In response to feedback, proposals for the Mansion Site have been updated.
In November 2019, Angle proposed creating 128 retirement living apartments. Angle listened to feedback and units have been reduced to comprise the development of 93 new-build retirement living apartments and the retention and conversion of the Grade 2 listed mansion into 18 retirement apartments.
In addition, there will be a range of communal facilities for both on/off-site residents and the refurbishment of the grounds and gardens.
Outline consent, seeking approval for the use, access, location and massing of the new buildings has been submitted in December 2020.
