NEW shops and maisonettes could be built on a former Isle of Wight Council car park in East Cowes.

Plans to redevelop the Well Road car park with a three-storey building of four retail units and nine maisonettes are being recommended for approval.

However, East Cowes Town Council has opposed the scheme on the basis it is over-development and would be out of character and harm the setting of the conservation area.

The Isle of Wight Council’s planning committee will consider the proposals next Tuesday.
