planning permission for storage use

Planning permission granted

One Planning Consultants achieved planning permission from Norwich City Council for alterations to an existing building and ancillary development to facilitate its continued use as a storage and distribution unit. Key issues included design, trees and noise impact on nearby dwellings. One Planning built a robust case to convince the Council that the proposal is acceptable in planning terms and all other aspects.

planning permission for three dwellings

Three dwellings approved in the Countryside

One Planning is proud to announce that planning permission was given for three new dwellings in Broadland District in an unallocated land, outside settlement boundaries falling within the ‘open countryside’ for the purposes of planning policy.

A separate appeal for five dwellings was dismissed on the same street. Among other things, the Inspector concluded that the additional traffic would likely result in an increase in the risk of vehicle and pedestrian conflict.

One Planning managed to convince Broadland Council that our client’s proposal would not result in an increase in highway risk and, on the contrary, improve highway safety.

The draft Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP), jointly produced by Broadland District, Norwich and South Norfolk Councils, is up for consultation under Regulation 18 until 16th March 2020. This gives everyone a chance to comment on the draft version of the Local Plan but also means that there is a window of opportunity for additional sites to be put forward for consideration as allocations within the GNLP. With our planning advice, you can identify land with strong development potential, and we can help you promote it through the GNLP process in order to maximise its estate value.

anglia square development

Anglia Square public inquiry to start on 28 January 2020

On 21 March 2019 the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government called-in the Anglia Square planning application for his own determination. The controversial scheme would include 1234 dwellings, a leisure quarter, cinema, car parks and a hotel being built on the site of the existing deteriorated Anglia Square. The main sticking point is the proposed 20 storey tower which some argue, including Historic England, that it would be ‘profoundly unsympathetic to the character of Norwich’.

The public inquiry will begin on 28 January and is expected to last four weeks during which an inspector will hear the arguments on both sides of the table before making a recommendation to the communities secretary on whether or not should the proposal be approved.

Did you know?

Although the estimates show that there are 500,000 listed buildings in England, the exact total number of listed buildings is unknown. This is because one entry on the National Heritage List England does sometimes include several distinct units. Confusing…. Luckily, Clare Vint, our in-house Principal Heritage Planner and a Full Member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation, is here to help through the intricacies of English Heritage.
