The developers submitted plans to demolish the core of the Officers Mess and rebuild a facsimile of the original building but obviously to modern standards. This proposal was refused at the last planning meeting held at CDC with the planning officer Deborah Smith.
Lindens intention was to redevelop the site by 2016. My feelings are that they will now submit plans to demolish the whole site and rebuild. If this doesn’t happen we will be left with a crumbling eyesore for decades.
What a shame that the CDC didn’t accept the original proposal.
