ASPRA has been made aware of a planning application that is in the process of being readied for submission to the Council. This is for the demolition of no 78 Shirley Road, a 4 bed family home, and its replacement by 2 blocks containing a total of 9 flats. One of these blocks is proposed at the end of the long garden of no 78, with access underneath part of the ‘front’ block. Information available here if you would like to comment.
