Below are two designs produced by the developer's architects.. The architects initially produced a design which cleverly combined the need to produce a commercially viable project with the sensitivity to the needs of the town for a development that was attractive, took account of the aspirations of the town for a flexible space for retail and social use and contributed to the need to draw people down Meeting House Lane into the Market Place..
The second design has been produced to reflect the views of the NFDC who have removed any provision for car parking, asked for retention of the old hardware store building (1 -7 Meeting House Lane) with its original façade with the addition of powder- coated steel windows, and the conversion of two retail units to residential use.
It is now important that the views of Ringwood's residents are expressed and communicated to the Town Council. who will represent the town in negotiations with the NFDC
We will publish more details shortly, including the original and the NFDC amended designs for:
- the front of the new building on the site of the old cinema
- 1-7- Meeting House Lane (old hardware store)
- 11-13 Meeting House Lane (currently treatment rooms which NFDC proposes
should be returned into two semi-detached houses.
