Churchill Retirement Living is preparing a planning application for a retirement development of approximately 26 privately-owned apartments at the former Magistrates Court in Bridport.
In an area that is already over-subscribed in this respect, and already has the pressures that go with a top-heavy aged population along with heavy second home ownership, this is the last thing that the town needs. The local authorities should be encouraging developments that help local people and investments, particularly the younger population. What the town needs is more affordable housing for rent and to buy for local people - yet another retirement complex is exactly what it doesn't need.
Not to mention the loss of car parking - the proposed site is on one of the very few long stay car parks in town.
We are totally against the proposal, and strongly encourage the local council to turn down any resulting planning application for new retirement properties.
