325 Hamble homes would ‘permanently undermine’ land function

Communities secretary Sajid Javid has refused permission for 225 residential units, 100 care and extra care units and other works for land west of Hamble in Hampshire, after judging the scheme’s negative impact on a “local gap” to outweigh its benefits.

Javid redetermines 100 Staffordshire homes appeal

Communities secretary Sajid Javid has approved the development of up to 100 homes for Rolleston on Dove, Staffordshire, after deciding that the scheme would not conflict with an emerging neighbourhood plan and the recently adopted East Staffordshire Local Plan Core Strategy.

Private rented homes need does not justify 200 Aberdeenshire homes

A reporter has refused permission for a residential scheme including 200 private rented homes, 75 affordable homes and 25 assisted living units in Banchory, Aberdeenshire, after finding that a wider need for such accommodation did not justify the scheme’s conflict with the development plan.

The Planner

Hotel-to-homeless accommodation conversion approved for Motherwell

A reporter has approved the change of use of the former Old Mill Hotel in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire to a residential training centre for people who are homeless, addicted and long term unemployed.

The Planner

Horely homes would not prejudice housing aims or strategic gap

Forty-six homes have been allowed for Horley in Surrey, after an inspector judged that the scheme would not negatively impact the separation of Horley from Gatwick airport, or prejudice Reigate and Banstead Borough Council’s ‘urban area first’ development strategy.

The Planner

Kirkby Thore wind turbine judged as preferable energy scheme

Communities secretary Sajid Javid has approved the development of a single “medium scale” turbine for Kirkby Thore, Cumbria, after finding that the development would have a preferable impact on the landscape than another approved scheme.

The Planner

Falmouth elderly care dwellings allowed despite loss of community green space

Sixty-nine extra care dwellings have been approved for Falmouth in Cornwall, after an inspector found that refusing the scheme owing to the site’s informal use for recreation could not be justified.

The Planner

Air quality concerns do not preclude ‘underground’ London hotel

Central London Investments Limited has been given the go ahead for the change of use of part of an underground car park to a 166-room hotel on Great Russell Street in London, despite concerns about the hotel’s ventilation scheme.

The Planner

Grain silo-to-residential conversion judged to be permitted development

The conversion of two agricultural grain silos to two single-storey residential properties has been given the go-ahead, after an inspector judged that the scheme was in accordance with class Q of the General Permitted Development Order.

The Planner

500 Chippenham homes would ‘harm village identity’

An inspector has refused permission for a large-scale development including 500 homes and a local centre in Langley Burrell, Chippenham, after finding that the negative impacts of the scheme on landscape, heritage assets and the ‘identity’ of the village cumulatively outweighed the benefits.
