  • I think the proposed plan for the new look Chantry Street looks awful yet another block of retirement homes to blot the landscape.
    I thought the council were trying to attract businesses and shoppers back to the town well the only businesses you will attract are funeral directors and florists I think, the bus station is only being done because the developer of this monstrosity has paid towards it as a bung to get the flats built! Shame on you Andover, Shame on you!!

  • I still think it would have been better to be the hight of the multi story to keep it slightly more in keeping although the council need to appreciate that they are now turning this ‘market town’ into something like Basingstoke which means they need to work more closely making the amenities fit the size of the town.

  • As I stated in the Andover Advertiser this week….I think it’s far too big and is rather ugly without landscaping around it to soften it’s impact. Not a thing of beauty or inspiration at all.

  • Instead of focusing on MORE housing, why not divert much needed attention to the business/retail side of things TVBC…

  • i would rather see the space empty for another 10yrs than see retirement flats put there! it’s prime retail space and ok the economic climate isn’t really healthy enough to start building more shops etc now, but it will pick up one day. it would be more sensible and inkeeping with our market town to use this smaller space wisely to expand the chantry centre and our shopping experience than to build on george yard carpark as has been proposed.

    • Basingstoke too was a market town before the development. Whilst we may want to keep the market town ‘tag’, I’d be much happier if the Chantry Centre offered something similar to Festival Place so that we could keep some shoppers in Andover.
