BCP Council (Bournemouth area): Matt Annen is pleased to announce that he has recently secured outline planning permission for the demolition of an existing building and the erection of a block of 9 flats with cycle and bin stores.

The application was very similar to a previously allowed scheme at appeal (also secured by Pure Town Planning) which had since expired. The current officer deemed that there would not be any discernible difference from the street scene when comparing the two schemes. The previous Inspector found the height, width, scale and appearance of the building to be appropriate for the setting. The proposed replacement building, when viewed from the front, would be comparable to the existing building, albeit slightly reduced in width and height to eaves, with a marginally higher ridge. The officer concluded the design is a pastiche with good detailing and the specific materials would be agreed as part of a condition to ensure a high quality finish.

If you have a property and would like to explore how to maximise the development potential, then please contact one the consultants from Pure Town Planning.
