Almshouses Future

An alternative site to that being proposed by the Almshouses Trustees has been offered, which lies within the permitted development envelope of Corsham.

Whilst subject to conservation area status, we are not aware that any listed buildings would be affected by a development of 12 new residences on the alternative site, which was the aim of the original application, but was rejected as too large.

This alternative site will provide the opportunity to build sustainably, to provide adequate living space, and to provide parking and gardening space as required by modern standards, subject to planning. Unfortunately, none of this is likely to be true of the present proposed site.
