New access route
Due to the closure of Royal Way we know local residents lost this access route to the Central SANG. We listened to your feedback and have constructed a new temporary access path from Alma Gardens. This path runs behind Portesbery Road to the Central SANG and was opened on 8 March.

New pub
Hall and Woodhouse hope that, as things improve in terms of the pandemic, they will be able to start construction this summer with the view to opening their doors in early 2022.

New food store
We know that everyone is keen to find out more about the new food store. The sale of the food store parcel is still under negotiation. We should have more information to share with you soon.

Our virtual consultation

As you may have seen from our recent flyer, we have been running a virtual consultation detailing the remaining infrastructure to be delivered.

A series of Reserved Matters Applications are being submitted for the next stage of infrastructure development at Mindenhurst. This includes areas of newly accessible public open space, a new church hall for the community and roads & infrastructure to serve future housing. These applications will cover all the remaining non-residential areas of the site.

The virtual consultation provides an opportunity to view our proposals and submit feedback on the plans.

The applications will provide details of how Skanska
proposes to deliver:

  • The community sports hub and northern open space The public park and new church hall next to St Barbara’s Church
  • New accessible Natural Green Space surrounding the former Sergeant’s Mess
  • The southern SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace)
  • The loop road through the site.
