Cheyne Nursery and Children's Centre with Housing - round 2

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this second round of consultation on a new nursery, children’s centre and social rent homes at Cheyne. If you haven't had the opportunity to look through the presentation about the proposal, we would encourage you to do so before completing this feedback form. Copies of the presentation video and accompanying slides are available on the Cheyne page of the Council’s website.

We appreciate those who fed back on the emerging proposal in the first round of consultation. We have considered the comments received and reviewed the design of the scheme to respond to the feedback. 

In round one, the consultation sought feedback on the principle of the development of a new Nursery and Children’s Centre on the site with new homes on the floors above. The round one consultation also sought views on the height options that were under consideration at that time of up to five, six or seven storeys. The height of the scheme was an issue for many local residents and as a result the design has been revised to reduce the height of the building to four storeys. This has a knock-on impact on the number of new homes that can be provided with nine homes now proposed (instead of up to 22 previously) on the first, second and third floor with the Nursery and Children’s Centre at ground and first floor. 

This round two consultation includes further information on the design including the size of the new homes proposed, what the building might look like and the play space that is proposed for the Nursery and Children’s Centre. We are now consulting on this revised scheme and would welcome your feedback on the new proposal.

This feedback form gives you the opportunity to provide comments which will help us to develop a more detailed design, which we will present at a future consultation event.

Please complete this form by 27 October 2021. If you are having difficulties accessing the material or require the information in another format (e.g. in an alternative language) please email or phone 07739 317294 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
