Canford cliffs plot splitBorough of Poole: Pure Town Planning are delighted to have secured planning consent for the demolition of an existing house and the erection of two 2500 sqft detached family dwellings in the desirable area of Canford Cliffs Village in Poole.

Plot splits (in this case “two-for-one”) on this particular road had not been viewed particularly favourably in the past by the Borough of Poole. However Pure Town Planning had recently secured a similar “two-for-one” scheme on a site diagonally opposite this one approved at planning committee (see that story here). By pointing a number of other recent changes to the built environment out to the planning officer we were able to successfully demonstrate that the scheme would sit comfortably in the street scene and with the surrounding built environment, thus not adversely affect the character or appearance of the area.

So the planning officer was happy from a purely planning point of view however the Council’s tree officer lodged a last minute objection on the grounds of impact to roots of protected trees. Matt was not going to let this issue get in the way of his planning permission! He penned a quick sketch for a revised driveway layout and sent it to the tree officer, following it up with a phone call. After a quick discussion, the tree officer was happy with Matt’s solution and we asked the architect Austin Design Partnership, who designed these good looking houses, to amend the plans accordingly. With this hurdle overcome the planning officer was happy to make a favourable recommendation to his team leader and the decision was signed off and planning permission was granted a couple of weeks ago.
