BCP Council (Bournemouth area): Jess Glover is pleased to announce that she has recently secured planning permission for the erection of a pair of semi-detached dwellings to the rear of Burleigh Road, Bournemouth.

The application site comprises an unusually long plot and the former rear garden of the adjacent property with a two storey dwelling fronting Burleigh Road and ample space to the rear.

Given the site’s context, we worked closely with architects Anders Roberts Cheer to prepare a scheme which reflected the character of the area and mix of dwelling types. The new dwellings were designed to respect the amenities of neighbouring properties with sufficient distances to neighbours whilst also providing adequate private garden space and parking for future occupants.

Within our supporting design, access and planning statement we put forward a robust justification that the proposal was an appropriate design response to the site’s context and this form of development would not in itself give rise to demonstrable harm upon the surrounding character and appearance of the area.

Upon considering the application and supporting documents the Council agreed with our conclusions and moved to grant planning permission for the development under delegated powers. Our client, Vail Homes, were delighted with the decision, which will deliver two excellent homes in a sustainable location.
