Mount Florida Bowling Club build recalibrated after planning setback
December 6 2021
Noah Developments have acquired the former Mount Florida Bowling Club, clearing the way for emerging new proposals for the contentious site drawn up by jmarchitects.
Closed since 2019 the club has been subject to a previous application which was refused on appeal in July, prompting the developer to go back to the drawing board with reconsidered proposals for homes and community facilities subject to public consultations.
Paul Winocour from Noah Developments said: “We are delighted to have come to an agreement with the Bowling Club on purchasing this site and to be bringing forward these exciting new proposals.
“In accordance with the Reporter’s observations, we have carefully reconsidered the architectural and design details of the residential element so that it better reflects the surrounding character of the area. We are also providing exciting new community facilities with a significant investment in these being made available.’’
Planned works include the retention and upgrade of the clubhouse pavilion, which will receive a £250k contribution from sale proceeds to cover the cost of refurbishment and the creation of a community open space which will be offered to a local community group for a peppercorn rent.
