After years of dereliction, the 0.8 acre site at 5-21 Weyhill, (the old Haslemere Motorcycles/Clements place) has just been sold to new owners, a subsidiary of Radian Housing Association.
The site has planning permission for 45 apartments in 2 blocks, with car parking and green amenity space. There’s also a new access onto Weyhill itself.
This may well provide a lot of the affordable and rental housing the town has been so short of and turn a prominent eyesore into an attractive environment.
UPDATE 7th Feb
The new owners have now confirmed that they plan to start on site in May, with some groundworks possible before then.
All 45 apartments will be for affordable rent, great news in a town with such little provision.
Construction period is expected to be 24 months.
