Pantiles Garden Centre went into receivership in 2015 and fully closed in 2017. The site is however still occupied by the sales, offices, display and propagation buildings, including large glasshouses, significant areas of hardstanding and plant and an extensive car park, together with 198 Almners Road, all accessed from Almners Road. The development proposes the demolition of the existing house that is located to the west of the present access to the main body of the application site. This will allow for the widening of the access into the site. All of the existing buildings of the former garden centre site will be demolished. This will allow for the erection of 60 new houses around a central green space. The houses will provide for a mix of accommodation and each house will have its own parking. The site is hidden from public view other than along the entrance drive behind existing houses and is in walking distance to the facilities Lyne has to offer including the Nursery and Primary School, the Village Hall, the Village Green and the Public House. The scheme will provide for a mix of 2 bedroom (wheelchair); 3 bedroom; 4 bedroom houses. All will have private gardens to the rear. 50% of the houses will be affordable.
