Angry Old Town residents have condemned a plan to build a tower taller than Christchurch in between Wood Street and Victoria Road.
Councillor Dave Wood said, “This building could not have been uglier or less in-keeping with Old Town. I started a survey where 95% of hundreds of residents told me this was a bad idea.
“Following public pressure the developers have said they will shelve this particular design and come up with a new one. But do take my survey and share you views as this issue will come up again soon.”
This land is currently owned by the Swindon Advertiser who will sell it to a developer when a plan goes through.
