RESIDENTS in Eastwood are opposing proposals to replace the BP service station with 29 new flats.
Residents received notification in mid-November from a firm called “your shout” carrying out a consultation on behalf of the developer, who is preparing to submit a planning application for the garage at 529 Rayleigh Road.
The letter stated: “The project team has undertaken a significant design process of proposed new buildings. We are proud to share their proposals.”
The plans propose 29 “much-needed homes “in the area, but a number of residents have been expressing their views on the proposals with concerns about the potential lack of infrastructure in the area for these flats.
The proposal would see the existing petrol filling station, along with underground fuel tanks demolished to provide a part three and part four story building that would include a basement car park retail units fronting Rayleigh Road and new apartments.
Two consultation events also took on Monday, November 27 and Tuesday, November 28.
