An exhibition was held in mid-January to show plans for the proposed redevelopment of St Martha's Convent Junior School on Union Street prior to a planning application being made.

The proposals are for 26 one, two and three bedroomed flats for older women (Older Womens Co-Housing, or OWCH!) and include shared facilities and generous gardens.

The main issues appear to be change of use
from educational to residential and height

The buildings are designed to be 2 and 3 stories high with limited on-site parking (10 spaces). The site falls within the Wood Street Conservation Area. The design has been submitted to the Council for their pre-application advice and the applicants (a Housing Association) await this feedback before making their application.
