1300 Christchurch Road
We heard today that the appeal made by the developers against the council's refusal of planning permission for flats at 1300 Christchurch Road has been refused. This is great news and means that the applications for flats on this site have all failed.
The Council have approved an application by the same developer for conversion of the house in to two units and for two semi detached houses to be built in the garden facing on to Colemore Road. This is a sensible use of the site in my opinion, providing adequate on site parking and in keeping with the area. Let's hope that the developers are able to proceed with these plans quickly and that they are able to sell the homes once they have been built!
