A DECISION on redevelopment plans at The Broadway Centre, Sandown, was postponed by Isle of Wight councillors last night (Tuesday).

Sandown Town Council wants to demolish the 19th century Broadway Centre and Los Altos building, which they claim are expensive to run and in poor condition.

It wants to build a new single-storey community centre and five houses, however officers have recommended refusal.

Members of the Isle of Wight Council planning committee agreed at last night’s meeting that they needed more information on the proposed housing and whether any would be offered as affordable homes.

A deferment would also enable further negotiation on lay-out, car parking and landscaping arrangements, they said.
