Sentinel set to reveal its plans to regenerate iconic Eli Lilly site into housing
HOUSING association Sentinel will offer first glimpses of how it plans to regenerate the iconic former Eli Lilly site later this month.
The Basingstoke-based landlord plans to turn the 10-hectare site, and the neighbouring Liverpool Victoria site in Kingsclere Road, Houndmills into housing after buying the plots for an undisclosed sum in September last year.
Sentinel, who calls the area the “Chapel Hill site”, will hold public consultations on March 21, and March 23.
In January and February this year Sentinel held a series of drop-in sessions at its headquarters in Kingsclere Road to hear residents' views on what the development should look like.
Sentinel's development and regeneration director Mike Shepherd said the feedback from those three sessions has shaped the regeneration plans set to go on show.
“We've listened to the concerns of the local community and taken their views into account within our initial designs,” said Mr Shepherd.
“We want the proposed regeneration to be something we can all be proud of and will continue to involve local residents and the wider community in the development of our proposals.”
As previously reported a scoping report submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council planners indicate that the organisation wants to build 500 homes.
The 70-year-old Eli Lilly “white” building, which made pharmaceutical products until its closure in 2008 would be used for “residential and community type purposes”.
The two consultation events will be on March 21 from 3.30pm to 7.30pm, and March 23 from 10am to 1pm at the Tempus Business Centre, 57 Kingsclere Road.
