Acting under urgency powers, and following consultation with the relevant officers and councillors, the Chief Executive has taken the decision to authorise the removal of reasons 1 and 3 from the determined planning application 22/2347M.
The applicant has lodged an appeal against the Council’s decision to refuse planning application 22/2347M. This appeal has been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate as a Public Inquiry.
Following on from the Council’s refusal of permission on 15 February 2023, the Council’s Highways Officers have undertaken survey work in relation to reason for refusal No.3 (lack of parking) and concluded that the evidence suggests that the parking provision is acceptable. Following discussions with the applicant and the Council’s appointed viability consultant in an attempt to find an agreed position in relation to viability (reason for refusal No.1), an agreed position has been reached to overcome the reason for refusal.
To authorise the removal of reasons for refusal No.1 (viability) and No.3 (lack of parking) from the determined planning application (reference 22/2347M) - the demolition of existing buildings and erection of 34 Retirement Living Apartments including Lodge Manager's office and reception, communal facilities, guest suite, car parking and landscaping at 17-19 Holly Road South, Wilmslow.
