Queen’s town

photo(5)The patchwork quilt that is Queen’s Walk could finally get a spruce up thanks to a planning application to turn Yell House into 110 flats.

Developer Ivypark will put trees and benches on this neglected walkway ahead of the proposed redevelopment of the Civic Centre and Hexagon sites. They even plan to do it all within 18 months, way ahead of the main regeneration of this one-time key area of town.

It all sounds too good to be true. An outdated building given new life, a dreary part of town made nicer and safer, new homes created, more customers for the shops and restaurants. Just the fact that this development holds so many plus points makes it seem ever more likely that the planning committee will stick a spanner in the works.
