Looking south from the footbridge over the former railway line. The mini-roundabout affords access to the multi-storey car park which is behind the camera.
Development of 'Extra care' homes on Chesil Street
Planners gave the go-ahead to redevelop the former open-air car park on Chesil Street as 52 'extra care' homes for the elderly. The adjacent multi-storey car park is unaffected.

The 15m scheme is jointly funded by the city and county councils, the Homes and Community Agency, and a local benefactor.

The scheme was controversial, with objections from local residents and also from motorists who found the open-air car park more convenient than the multi-storey. But the need for more homes for the elderly was beyond dispute. LinkExternal link
