Developer found for £10m regeneration of Walcot square

A DEVELOPER for the long-awaited multi-million-pound regeneration scheme at Sussex Square has been announced by Swindon Council – marking a huge step in the project’s progress.

The £10m proposal, which will see a new retail development and homes being built on the Walcot site, will be delivered by LSP Developments.

Under the plans, the 14 shops, 33 houses and flats, community hall and library, which have made up the district since 1958, will all be pulled down.

In July, Swindon Council’s cabinet agreed the mixed-use development should go ahead. This was decided despite the fact the developer plans to rent homes at affordable rates (80 per cent of market value) rather than social housing prices (about 50 per cent of the market value).

Coun Mark Dempsey, (Lab, Walcot & Park North), said it was great news that progress has been made. “It’s really encouraging a developer has come forward.

“I am looking forward to seeing the planning application when it comes into the council. I understand there will be a public consultation for people to have their say on the planning application.”

Residents came out in support of the outline proposals during a council-led consultation in June, which found most people backed the plans but some were worried it included too few shops.

Coun Dempsey said: “We wanted to make sure residents had a chance to have their say before the plans went out to a developer. I was pleased with the feedback – most people were really impressed with the plans.

“I was very keen to make sure there is proper provision for community activities such as for the library and for the shop. The youth cafe is also run from Sussex Square so if it continues it is important it is offered a space there too.”

But Carolanne Bond, the chairman of Swindon Walcot and Parks Community Group, said it was not happy with the plans as it feared the site could be transformed into a concrete mess for years.

Carolanne, 69, of Stanley Honey Court, said: “We are going to be left with a load of rubble for years before they build the houses. We will still have to get across the site to get to the new shops.”

She said the outline plans included a new supermarket, which she felt was not needed in the area.

“We already have a lot of good local shops which have been there for years,” she said.

It is expected a formal planning application will be submitted to the council during the next few months.

The existing units are likely to be knocked down during the autumn, with the retail side of the scheme being completed the following autumn, and it is anticipated the whole project will be finished by early 2018.

It is quoted that;

" The existing units are likely to be knocked down during the autumn, with the retail side of the scheme being completed the following autumn, and it is anticipated the whole project will be finished by early 2018."

If this is the timetable then it would have been nice for leaseholders to have been told so that they can also make plans for the future.

If all units are knocked down before any rebuilding then we at the Shop and Library will cease to exist. Is this really the plan or has the reporter got it wrong.

Could the council please clarify the statement.

Is this development going to make many people homeless for the sake of newer shop units?

why build a shopping centre on the edge of Walcot , easy to drive past to superstores, no it needs an area of Buckhurst Fields set aside for a small level retail development, and the old retail area converted into affordable lets ( not that people will be able to afford those either)

No way!
Leave the few remaining green spaces in the town alone.
Too many have already gone.

Mango man, surely the point of doing REGENERATION is to refresh and bring hope to an area that is run down.

Some but not all the problems of anti social behaviour can be addressed by rebuilding. As for benefit scroungers they tend to exist everywhere you care to look, not just in Walcot.

I think the point some find hard to understand is that money in being spent in an area where very few contribute to the councils purse and areas where people do actually pay council tax are left behind. We seem to spend a disproportionate amount helping those who give nothing back to society against those who do, which is hardly going to incentivise them to actually work for a living if they get it for doing nothing!

As for benefit scroungers, yes agree they are everywhere, so why arent they being dealt with? with 53% of the population being net takers rather than contributors, we need to wake up and change that before the welfare state bankrupts the country and all the foreign companies leave in droves as we all go bust!

It does look like a bit of a swipe though, from a bitter ex councillor who was ousted. If you go back to Labour you'd probably win next time.

Why is it that some posters are just so thick that they cannot put anything in these posts without being personal.

Just to put the record straight, I am not bitter about anything. I enjoy winding up half wits that post on these sites. I will continue to do so.

As for being in the Labour Party for a short while, yes I was and when I realised my mistake I got out quickly. I am more than willing to admit my mistakes but I think doing so to people with a fixed agenda is pointless.

I await your replies gentlemen.

Just because people work doesnt mean they are still not net takers rather than contributors and maybe if you had worked in social housing for 10 years you would know what actually goes on and the real attitudes of far more than the small minority you are conned into believing. But why let the reality get in the way of your narrow views!

Left-wingers are always like this, House. They believe they're the only 'nice' people and that everyone else is 'nasty'.

It IS a con, as you mention, but it's a very easy one for them to adopt and continually bleat on about.

The only upside is that most people now see it for what it is. There is actually nothing nastier or less caring than a rampant leftie.

I would guess that at least a third of the houses in walcot are privately owned. I'd also guess that the majority of council properties have working people in them or retired pensioners.

No need, no mental health problems here.

Those who deny what they've just said, despite it being quoted back to them, and who consistenly post nothing but left-wing cliches and then claim they're not left-wing are the ones that should seek professional help, as it's just bizarre behaviour.

You and Empty Car Park really should take advantage of the free services your beloved NHS offers for such problems. I won't mind paying for that for you.

You and Empty Car Park really should take advantage of the free services your beloved NHS offers for such problems. I won't mind paying for that for you. Ringer

Said the self-proclaimed 'non left winger'.

You don't seem to realise that your last post is the very definition of 'trolling'.

Why do you not accept that you're simply in the wrong, minority position? Nobody is 'phoning or texting' anyone. Nobody is 'manipulating' votes (you might want to think about seeing somebody about that paranoia).

You just get a lot of down votes because lots of people disagree with your militant left-wing ramblings.
You need help. Are you seeing anyone for your mental issues?

Just lacking the ability to read something properly and then quote correctly then?
Maybe if you were not blinded by your own mad rantings you might be able to read other people's points properly?

Do you go into some sort of trance where you cannot remember what is said or what you do, then wake up and pretend it didn't happen or what was said was different to what is right there on the screen?

This is all getting even more bizarre now. You're describing yourself but, seemingly, aiming those comments at me. Very odd.

Are you still claiming you're 'not' left-wing (despite only ever posting very glaringly left-wing comments), or have you thought better of it yet?

Tell us again how you support the firefighters' union, the teachers union, lower council house rents for council tenants and all the other rampantly left-wing standards that you come out with on a daily basis - while always having a pop at anyone who you consider right-wing, which is apparently anyone who votes with a thumbs down for your posts.

Blatant thumbs manipulation yet again. He even avoids giving himself the quick thumbs up to try to hide it. Hilarious
