Members should be aware of the proposed Southgate Village development on Chase Road next to the Hart pub backing onto Park Road and the railway line by M&S. This is a plan to rebuild Southgate Office Village as a mixed office and housing development, with several tall buildings, including a 17-storey tower.
The tower blocks would be visible for miles around. The development would be likely to attract a transient renting population rather than families. It would create a precedent for similar developments on other nearby sites such as Marks and Spencer.
Southgate District Civic Trust will be holding a public consultation day on June 22nd, 9.30 to 3pm at St Andrew’s Church and anyone interested is invited to attend. Following this meeting, Civic Voice will produce a planning brief to represent the community’s view on the development.
