Another new residential development proposed in Dunstable on the disused former Trico site part of the old AC Delco site

Catalyst Housing limited are proposing a development of 61 residential units consisting of 38 houses and 23 flats on the corner of Brewers Hill Road and High Street North opposite The Incuba Business Centre. The proposal is for a mix of 23 two bedroom flats within a four storey block, 10 two bedroom 2 storey houses and 23 three bedroom 3 storey houses.

Commonly known as The Trico site where motor vehicle parts were previously manufactured and before that it was part of the vast AC Delco site. Trico stopped operating at the site in 2003 and the buildings were demolished in 2005. The main AC Delco site was redeveloped by Bloor Homes during the past 7 years.

The site has been marketed by four different agents over the years for use as a care home, employment or residential use with no interest in the options for a care home or employment uses.

There will be 18 (2 bed) affordable rent units in the apartment block and 5 shared ownership (2bed) units within the apartment block It is proposed that a further 8 shared ownership (3 bed) houses will also be included.

This is in addition to a number of other proposed residential developments in Dunstable that I have mentioned previously which includes the large vacant site next to the BP garage on Luton Road and a large unseen site behind the new Priory Heights building on Church Street.
