NORFOLK GRANGE
the Telephone House site, Church Road / York Road, Tunbridge Wells

has been baptised


THE SALE CAMPAIGN IS ON
[ only 3 months after the construction start in May 2003 ]

31 July 2003

We read from
CALA Homes website, that what is known to

has now been named Norfolk Grange.


We speculate: "Norfolk" - Norfolk Hotel was the hotel which was demolished to be replaced by BT's ghastly Synchordia House.
We speculate: "Grange" - A grange, in the towncentre? - Is it a barn? farmhouse? countryhouse with outbuildings?

CALA is more imaginative on the pricing : from 325,000, the grangers say.
The crammed place provides for 43 flats - this includes 8 social housing on-site.


SUGGESTION: Would " CIDER HOUSE " not be more appropriate ?



N.B. - While residents in York Road, Tunbridge Wells, came only as a runner-up in this year's "Tunbridge Wells in Bloom" (they blame the felling of substantial road side trees by CALA Homes for this) - CALA invites prospective flat buyers to a barbecue in Sunningdale.
We wonder if our beloved trees in the Conservation Area, had to be turned into charcoal to provide for the feast?






April 2002 - CALA Homes took over BT/Crest Nicholson's controversial planning permission for the high density development of Telephone House in Tunbridge Wells

URBAN CRAMMING or URBAN REGENERATION in Tunbridge Wells ?

May 2003 - CALA Homes continue the Telephone House saga :
- the Construction of their Estate -

Whom are we dealing with? - The developers of Telephone House

The Telephone House Neighbours Association informs on CALA Homes (South) Development:
CALA Group acquired the controversial planning permission for the high density development of Telephone House site, Church Road / York Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1, Kent.
