BCP Council (former Borough of Poole): Pure Town Planning are excited to announce that we have recently secured full planning permission for the erection of two detached dwellings to the rear of Granville Road, Poole.

The application site forms No.12 Granville Road and the rear garden of No.14 Granville Road. The existing dwellings date from late Victorian era and have large rear gardens. Within the wider area properties are laid out in a grid pattern with various examples of backland development present on Granville Road.

Given the site’s context and proximity to neighbouring properties, we worked closely with architects Anders Roberts Cheer to prepare a scheme which reflected the character of the area, whilst safeguarding the neighbouring amenity through a sensitive fenestration design..

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 backland development would not in itself give rise to demonstrable harm upon the surrounding character and appearance of the area or neighbouring residents.

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, Harlequin Homes, were delighted with the decision, which will deliver two excellent homes in a sustainable location.
