Borough of Poole: Pure Town Planning won another planning appeal recently – a valuable consent for three detached houses replacing one in the Canford Cliffs area of Poole. The scheme was designed by Anders Roberts Cheer architects.
This road had seen a number of plot splits approved in recent years however this was the end plot – wedged shaped and with more trees to deal with than the others. The Borough of Poole Council considered that in view of the constraints the site could not support three dwellings so refused consent on grounds of impact on the trees and inadequate light to the proposed dwellings.
Pure Town Planning, assisted by Andrew Scott of Scott Tree Services, successfully persuaded the Inspector that “the proposed development would not result in an unacceptable or adverse impact on the long-term vitality of the retained protected trees, and as a consequence the character and appearance of the area.” We also commissioned HDSgreentech to produce a daylight study of the relevant windows which persuaded the Inspector that the living conditions for future residents would be satisfactory.
If you have recently had a planning application refused, contact Pure Town Planning for our honest opinion as to whether an appeal would be worthwhile.
