Bournemouth Borough Council: Pure Town Planning are celebrating another successful appeal win for an 8 unit residential redevelopment on Warren Edge Close.

Following a previously refused scheme to demolish the existing bungalow and erect a 2/3 storey block of 8 flats in May 2016, in conjunction with Anders Roberts Cheer, a revised application was submitted which amended the proposed design to address the Council’s concerns. This revised application was later refused in August 2016 by Bournemouth Borough Council on grounds of being out of keeping with the existing character of Warren Edge Close by reason of scale, design and layout as well as harmful impact to amenity of neighbouring properties on Warren Edge Close and St. Catherine’s Road.

PTP were then instructed to challenge the decision at appeal. The Inspector assessed the evidence and supporting reports and determined that the revised scheme, which saw a reduction in scale and increased separation gaps, would be an acceptable addition to the Warren Edge Close street scene, mitigating against previous Council’s concerns of overlooking and loss of privacy to surrounding properties and was fully acceptable in terms of highways – subsequently allowing the appeal.

The client was naturally delighted to hear the good news, which brings a satisfying conclusion following a series of applications and challenges to secure the all-important planning permission.If you have recently had planning permission refused and are considering what to do next, why not contact Pure Town Planning on 01202 585524 or email us at  for an assessment of your chances of success on appeal.
