    Additional information

    • The original outline planning consent (P1513/13/OUT) was issued on 31st January 2014 following a unanimous decision to resolve to grant planning permission by the Planning Committee on 10th December 2013. This planning permission established the principle for the erection of up to 30 dwellings and new access on the site. The approval of the reserved matters decision (P1915/15/APP) was issued on the 17th June 2016, requiring the implementation of the consent by the 17th June 2018. With no material start having been made on site nor the clauses of the S106 being satisfied, the planning permission for the development of the site lapsed in June 2018. Despite the lapsing of the consent, both the previous planning permission and the approval of the associated planning conditions, set the precedent for and the principal of, residential development being acceptable on the site.
