The man behind the regeneration of the former Admiralty site at Foxhill – the largest of three former MoD sites in Bath – has been talking to the Virtual Museum about his visions for its redevelopment.
He is also hoping the local community who live around the complex can not only contribute their own ideas for the design of the new scheme but benefit from it as well.
Ian Jones who is Project Director for Curo – the company who have bought the 46 acre site for residential development – says they are looking towards devising a master plan for the whole of the Foxhill area.
He told the Virtual Museum that demolition work would be starting soon but Curo would not be putting in its formal planning application until October – and that would be after extensive consultation. They hoped to start building in 2016 with the first properties ready for occupation in 2017.
Here’s Ian’s interview with the Virtual Museum of Bath.
