Consultation on Vista’s Centre for Sight Loss

Published on 8th March 2021 in General

We have spoken many times about our ambition to re-develop Vista’s site at Leicester Forest East and over the past year we have been working with architects to design a new building.

Vista’s Centre for Sight Loss will be a new home for the charity and for the sight loss community in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The building will have a wide range of facilities to host activities and services, provide social and leisure space, a café, shop and gym and will also include a new specialist care home for people affected by sight loss. We hope to apply for planning permission in the spring and in preparation we are holding a consultation about the new building.

Due to lockdown restrictions, we are sadly not able to do this face to face and the consultation is being held online. On the website you will find plans, designs, and documents, but also audio files to accompany these, explaining more about our plans and the building design. 

It is vital that the planners hear the views of the people Vista supports, as well as our neighbours in Leicester Forest East, and understand the impact this redevelopment will have.

Please visit and let us know your comments. We are really excited about these plans for the future, and hope you are too.
