Borough of Poole: Pure Town Planning are celebrating another successful planning permission, secured at Planning Committee, for the erection of a 10 unit residential block in Newtown, Poole. The proposal sought the demolition of two dilapidated bungalows in St Georges Avenue and the redevelopment of the combined site into a more attractive and functional use of 2 1/2 storey flatted development.
Throughout the course of the lengthy application, rigorous consultation was undertaken with the respective Borough of Poole planning officers. These thorough discussions included multiple sets of amended plans to address all potential concerns from the Council. Notwithstanding these efforts, the application was ultimately brought before Planning Committee with Officer’s recommendation to refuse the scheme due to perceived overdevelopment, harmful impact on neighbouring amenity and lack of landscaping on site.
Following PTP’s deputation to Committee Members, exhaustively demonstrating the acceptability and merits of the residential redevelopment in all regards, Members debated the proposal. Members agreed with PTP’s summation (against Officers’ recommendation) that the proposed redevelopment was suitably designed and delivered substantial benefits to this particular area in terms of providing much-needed 2 bed units with parking in a sustainable location. Members recognised the opportunity of the resulting redevelopment and considered this a marked improvement on the existing site, subsequently voting in favour of the application.
