Press Release about Clark's office building

We have issued this following press release


For immediate release:


Concern over height of office block

Odd Down Councillors Nigel Roberts and Steve Hedges are raising concerns about the new Clark’s office building with the Council. Residents in surrounding streets are not happy about the visual impact of the new offices that dominate the skyline.

Councillor Nigel Roberts commented:

When you look up from the surrounding roads, this new building dominates the skyline. I believe it looks too tall and residents have expressed the same concerns to me, especially in a world heritage city."

Cllr Steve Hedges added

There is supposed to be a landscaping scheme for the site, but I find it difficult to see what can be done to reduce the visual impact of such a big building.

We have contacted the Council's planning department to inform them of our concerns and our residents’ concerns over the height of the building and we are waiting the outcome of their investigations.”
