TODAY: Public Viewing of Plans to Redevelop Arthur Clark Carehome Site
afternoon don’t forget to pop along to St Andrew’s Hall, Albert Road, Caversham
Heights, to view plans for a new extra care housing scheme for older people on
the former Arthur Clark Residential Home and the Albert Road Day Centre.
facilities were closed down by RBC’s Labour administration despite colossal
opposition from the community supported by politicians of all the other
colours. I’ve written a few posts on
this which you can read here
Dominion, the company selected by RBC to draw up plans for the site, is
inviting local residents to view and share their opinions on the proposed plans
between 3.30 and 7 pm today.
you are unable to make it apparently questions or queries will be answered if
people call 0800 432 0077 (which I believe is a Freephone number, but do
double-check first). Update I attended the consultation event. Please note that although RBC's press release (from which I took my information for the above post) referred to "plans", A2 Dominion in fact displayed indicative drawings.
