DESIGNS for the redevelopment of a derelict site in Malvern have been revealed.

Elevate Property Group has revealed its designs for a new development of 17 houses and apartments in Edith Walk.

The plans also include three new commercial units within the development.

The proposals have been submitted to Malvern Hills District Council for approval this month following consultations between Elevate and council officers.

Architect Philip Ives described the Edith Walk location as a “challenging diamond of a site to work on” and said they hoped to do justice to the architectural challenge.

He said: “Malvern Hills District Council has quite rightly set the bar very high on what they consider to be acceptable for such a key site in the centre of Great Malvern.

“Edith Walk is an historic east-west route in the centre of the town. The site is a location that the council is keen to invigorate.

“Council officers have been approachable and supportive in the encouragement of a design solution that activates the north side of Edith Walk above Waitrose and ensures that the access route that links the top of the site by The Foley Arms Hotel links into the carriageway in Edith Walk at the safest and most logical location,” he said.

The development, if approved, will provide 11 houses offering two, three and four bedrooms, and six 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The plans include more than one parking space per dwelling.

The team behind the Edith Walk proposals was responsible for the redevelopment of Wells House, the Coach Houses and former Chapel in Malvern Wells, and two four-bedroom houses at The Chase on the Worcester Road in Malvern between 2012 and 2014.
