Proposals for the conversion of Hunstanton Infant School to residential use to be presented by developers on 27th January.
In his column in Town and Around's December issue, County Councillor Andrew Jamieson said: "The Infant School in Valentine Road has a strong pull on the heartstrings of many Hunstanton residents.
"I have always wanted to make sure that if NCC were to sell the site, it would do so to a group that would have an understanding both of the need for local housing as well as to retain the character of the building. Therefore, I am very pleased to say that it will be Repton Properties, NCC’s own property company, that will be the developer and that I will therefore be able to retain input and keep residents informed along the way."
Repton works with developers including Torrington Properties to obtain planning permission and provide housing on council land.
The Town Clerk informed Town and Around this evening that those involved in the project, Torrington Properties, Lanpro Services and Gary Johns Architects, will be making a presentation on 27th January at 6pm.
Mark Nevitt, Founding Director of Torrington Properties, Beccy Rejzek, Associate Director of Lanpro Services and Senior Architect Sam Robinson from Gary Johns Architects will be providing the presentation.
It will be a virtual meeting and members of the public are welcome to attend along with residents from the surrounding area of the old infant school who have received letters from Lanpro inviting them.
