Alton Youth Club to become a nursery?

Opportunities in Alton East

Interesting, the above photo was taken from the Preferred Options Presentation Board.

So, not long ago the Council stated that “The Alton Youth Club site and surplus land at Bessborough Road and Fontley Way are well suited for high quality single family homes”.

Now there’s a proposal for “Change of use from youth club (Use Class D2) to nursery/day care use (Use Class D1). It is proposed to have 20 members of staff and 65 children enrolled at the nursery”.

The latest stage of the application was registered on 14/09/2015 and it seems that comments are to be received by 05/10/2015.

One thought on “Alton Youth Club to become a nursery?

  1. Doing It For The Kids

    So how many children’s nurseries do we need ?

    There’s another submission (now an approved planning permission) number 2015/2199. It’s for the building between Hungerford Garage and the Montague Arms (the old Barclays Bank).

    The main stuff’s to be found at and is a

    “planning application for the change of use of the
    basement and ground floor to a Class D1 children’s day nursery for
    Katey’s House Limited, with places for 65 children from 0 – 5 years”

    Blimey, those 65 kids are really being chased after ! That’s EXACTLY the same number the Alton East application’s after ! Is there a particular 65 kids that’s got to be nurseried at all costs ?

    This application (permission granted in August) came with a battery of client reports: a Planning Statement, a Parking Stress Survey Report and a Travel Plan. Much more high powered than the Thamesmead lady’s submission. They at least had the nous and determination to meet objections before they were made. A touch overkill, in fact, you might think their pre-emptions are.
