May 2015 - Facelift for Old Co-op Building in Dalston Square

Site Manager, Shaun Forrester, has now been able to remove the scafolding and plastic sheeting from the Old Co-op building in the Square. Doesn't it look fantastic? JJ Latimer have been working on the building for many months, and not just on the outside. Inside there will be three apartments and a retail food unit (the planning permission was for a fish and chip shop). Hopefully the clock too will have a new lease of life.

Dalston is currently prepararing a Neighbourhood Plan. This is a community led spatial plan which has statutory backing from the Localism Act 2011. A Neighbourhood Plan can:

  • Decide where and what type of development should happen in an area.
  • Include policies, such as design standards, which take precedence over existing local planning policies.

The proposal to carry out a Neighbourhood Plan was announced at the recent Annual Parish Meeting. Leaflets were distributed to enable residents to start the involvement process through a very simple questionnaire. If you have such a questionnaire, please ensure that you return this to the Dalston Co-op drop box or post through the Forge Green letter box.

Volunteers are required to assist the steering group. If you are interested in helping with this process, please contact the Clerk here.
