CONTROVERSIAL PLANS APPROVED FOR BRADING


DESPITE over 200 letters of objection, the Isle of Wight Council have this evening agreed to pass controversial plans to redevelop the former Brading Waxworks building in the High Street.

Local residents, an action group and the Protection of Rural England all objected the plans to demolish parts of the former attraction and and transform the use of other areas.

Now that plans have been approved, the building will be converted into an antique and craft shop with a in-house cafe and will include three flats on the first floor. A further nine houses will be built alongside the current auction rooms, operated by Hose Rhodes Dickson.

The site has been empty since ‘The Brading Experience’ closed in January 2010, however in more recent times a adjoined section of the former Wax works attraction was transformed into an auction house.
