BCP Council (Bournemouth): Matt Annen is pleased to announce that he has recently secured full planning permission for the demolition of an existing building (containing 4 flats) and its replacement with of a new build block of 9 flats close to the Southbourne cliff top in Bournemouth. This scheme was designed by local firm Anders Roberts Cheer Architects for mutual client  Amirez Developments.

Despite a well thought out design and robustly supported planning submission from Pure Town Planning, the whole planning process from submission to determination still took 10 months! Unfortunately, given the mess that the BCP planning department has been in over the past 2 years with a severe lack of staff and lack of support for the staff that they do have (meaning many newly recruited staff leave shortly after joining), it sadly isn’t that uncommon for schemes to take five times as long as they should.

If you have a property and you would like to explore its flatted redevelopment potential, please contact Pure Town Planning on 01202 585524 or email info@puretownplanning.co.uk for a confidential planning appraisal.
