Castle Lane West planning consultants BournemouthBournemouth Borough Council: It seems success really does breed success, continuing on from our recent winning streak; Pure Town Planning are celebrating after securing a superb planning approval for the demolition of a detached house and the erection of a replacement building of traditional design containing 5 flats opposite Castlepoint in Bournemouth.

Through a well presented application, comprehensive Design and Access Statement as well as strong negotiation, we were able to convince the appointed planning officer at Bournemouth Borough Council that the proposed number of units and the scale, layout and appearance of the building would be appropriate to the context of the site and would not introduce any harmful impacts on the character or appearance of the area or amenities of neighbouring residents. Planning permission was received within the Council’s 8 week statutory time frame and we believe the applicants will be starting the construction early next year…. watch this space!

What makes this approval even more sweet is that once more with the help of Simon Corp (S106 Affordable housing) we were able to completely argue away Bournemouth’s affordable housing contribution. Simon put together a comprehensive viability report which convinced the District Valuer that it would not be financially viable for the developer to pay any affordable housing contribution.

As you can see here at Pure Town Planning, we like nothing more than securing our clients planning approvals. If you are thinking of pursuing a housing development and are looking for a local firm of town planners to fight your corner and secure planning permission for your scheme, then why not give us a call or send us an email to
