Sites under planning or development: 

 

Goldring Court

The Old Chapel site is located between Norris Close and Goldring Way and there is development going on now for flats and a retail unit. This site is privately owned and development started in 2015. Various planning applications are in play here and a new planning application will be submitted in June 2016 to remove the retail unit. As this was one of the initial requirements for Napsbury Park, the NPRA have a petition running to block the new planning permission: http://bit.ly/napsburyshop
