Redevelopment of the site to form 40 apartments and 424sqm of commercial space, following partial demolition of existing buildings.

 

RESOLVED that the application be deferred until a later date, as per the recommendation from the Head of Planning, which was as follows:

The Environment Agency informed the local planning authority on the 19th July that there is a need to undertake a further consultation with them on Flooding. There is also a need to consult with Historic England on heritage matters before the item can be brought to planning committee. It is therefore necessary to undertake further consultation with these two statutory agencies before a resolution can be made on the application.”
