Plans to re-develop Dorking’s former magistrates’ courts into retirement apartments given green light by committee
The former magistrates court will now be re-developed by Renaissance Retirement into retirement apartments.
The decision means Renaissance Retirement will now demolish the existing building and erect a total of 21 one and two bedroom apartments and a public tea room.
The scheme also makes provision for:
- a members' club for the local elderly (for use for social events etc)
- financial assistance to the adjacent Pippbrook Bowls Club to support the development of a new club house
- a financial contribution towards the provision of affordable housing locally.
The full story on this decision will follow shortly.
