Site description

This redundant school land in Sandown has the potential to provide a residential development and is considered particularly suitable for an extra-care housing development, as part of an Island-wide extra care housing strategy. The site is owned entirely by the council.

New residents would be able to take advantage of the site’s relative proximity to Sandown town centre, train station and a nearby health and social care services centre (The Heights). The council’s recent decision to demolish the old school building provides the opportunity for development to progress at a reasonable pace.
