B802 – A(PL) – 11A Proposed Site Finishes Plan
Planning consent has been granted for the demolition of the former King Oswy Public House and its replacement with a new foodstore. The decision was made by members of Hartlepool Planning Committee on 3rd April.
The current public house has been closed for some time and despite attempts to market the site as a going concern, no buyer wanting to operate the pub came forward.
Seneca Developments propose to demolish the existing structure and build a new single storey food and convenience store on the site providing around 4,700ft of new retail floorspace.
Prism Planning provided the planning support for the project, carrying out the public consultation on the project as well as preparing and submitting the application. This included a sequential search to justify the site selection. The scheme was designed by Andy Riley, a well respected local architect.
We wish Neil and the Seneca team all the very best in tackling this project which will provide a welcome boost to services in the area.
A housing scheme for 77 dwellings on the outskirts of Middlesbrough has just cleared its final hurdle, getting reserved matters approval following a meeting of Middlesbrough Councils Planning meeting on 5th April.
Outline consent for the mixed scheme of 3, 4 and 5 bedroomed family homes was originally granted in November 2012 after a prolonged debate with the Highways Agency over the means of access to the site. Middlesbrough Council consistently took a positive attitude towards the development of the site, noting that they had an absence of a deliverable 5 year land supply and accepting that this overrode the Greenfield status of the site.
The granting of the final reserved matters will enable Miller Homes to start construction on the site later in 2013. Prism Planning have advised throughout the scheme, successfully obtaining both the original outline and the reserved matter consents.
