Plans have been submitted to demolish a former church in Blackfen for a new housing block.
According to the planning application: “The existing building on the site is the Church of The Good Shepherd, Blackfen, founded in 1967 and built in that era.
The existing church was no longer required by the diocese due to falling congregation numbers and fell out of use as a church in the 1980’s.
The existing building which includes a hall is currently used as a social facility. The small church/chapel has a contemporary spire over octagonal clearstory window centre sitting piece, on a red brick base.”
In its place will be nine new flats. Another new build block was constructed next door over the past couple of years.
