You may remember the ‘special’ wall which was demolished in a car accident last year – see the header picture for a close-up, or click the picture below to go to the article on this site, then scroll down for even more detail. Note that this will open in a new window. Well, in Thursday’s Christchurch Times, it was confirmed that it is to be demolished and 18 two-bedroom flats built. This was originally put forward by the hotel’s proprietors, but the plan was refused in July 2017. I understand that the wall, as part of the original boundary of Highcliffe Castle, should still be rebuilt. The picture below shows one of the elevations. Finally, here is a link to the planning documents.
