Reader's Photos: All our Yesterdays

Kelvin Briggs sent us these photos of the site of the former Yesterdays nightclub at Harden Park.

The site is currently being cleared as planning permission was granted to demolish the Victoria villa, most recently used as Yesterdays nightclub but originally a small hotel, and replace it with a residential development of 12 dwellings, 4 of which will be affordable units.

Kelvin said "Just a couple of birds on the Yesterdays/ Hardern Park pond on Friday as the tree fellling and site clearance gathers pace.

"A few snowdrops peeping through as the ancient trees are felled. No more buzzards nesting and calling out overhead. No smell of wild garlic and just a few signs of the bluebell growth.

"A site of desolation, quite ethereal in early morning silence and peace."

as a condition of planning, is the 'pond' to remain (and be looked after)?
anyone know the likely price of the affordable 'units'? and in this particular context, what exactly is a 'unit'. as opposed to 'dwellings'?

Well as in the news today that 40% of the houses in Alderley are above the 1million price then affordable would probably be around £500,000!
No such thing as affordable in Alderley!

If C.E. donated the land for free (Brownfield of course) and a builder was hired to build small (say 2-bed) but well-build houses, possibly under the control of local citizens, how much would such houses cost? Probably much less than £500,000 ?
Anyone out there qualified to answer this question?
