Item 5A- Sandpiper Hotel, Cleveleys Avenue, Thornton Cleveleys, FY5 2NH (Application Number: 19/00764/FULMAJ)

Demolition of existing Public House and redevelopment of the site to provide 15 no. new affordable dwellings, consisting of 3 no. 2 bedroom houses, 3 no. 1 bedroom apartments and 9 no. 2 bedroom apartments with associated parking and amenity space.

 

The application was brought before Members of the Planning Committee for determination at the request of Councillor Ian and Rita Amos.

 

A site visit took place to enable Members to understand the proposal beyond the plans submitted and the photos taken by the Case Officer.

 

An update sheet with additional information was published on the council’s website and made available at the meeting, this information only having become available after the original agenda was published. The committee considered the update sheet, which contained additional information and a revision to condition 2 and 12.

 

Ms Levitt, Mr Johnston, Mr Fellows and Mr Robertson (members of the public) made objections to the application.

 

Andrea Kay (Lancashire County Councillor for Cleveleys East) made objections to the application.

 

RESOLVED that the application above be REFUSED (contrary to the recommendation) under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as set out below:

 

·         The scale, design, and massing of the development would, in the context of that which characterises the surrounding area, which comprises of predominantly bungalow properties, be out of keeping with the street scene and character of the local area, inappropriate in its context, resulting in an unacceptable impact on visual amenity and a failure to make a positive contribution to the local area. As such the proposed development will conflict with the provisions of policy CDMP3 of the Adopted Wyre Local Plan 2011-31, which seeks high standards of design for all development that is appropriate to the local context, and with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

Item 5B- 29-31 Coronation Road, Thornton Cleveleys, FY5 1DQ (Application Number: 19/00902/OUTMAJ)

Outline application for the erection of a four storey 44 bedroom nursing home (Use class C2) following demolition of existing dwellings with access, layout and scale applied for (all other matters reserved) (resubmission 18/00643/OUTMAJ)

 

The application was brought before Members of the Planning Committee for determination at the request of Councillor Fail.

 

A site visit took place to enable Members to understand the proposal beyond the plans submitted and the photos taken by the Case Officer.

 

Ms Fitzgerald (member of the public) made objections to the application.

 

Rob Fail (Wyre Councillor for Jubilee Ward) made objections to the application.

 

Paul Sedgwick, Agent of the applicant (Movern Care Centre), spoke in favour of the application.

 

RESOLVED that the application above be REFUSED (contrary to the recommendation) under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as set out below:

 

  • The scale, design, and massing of the development would, in the context of that which characterises the street, which comprises of predominantly two storey properties, be out of keeping with the street scene and character of the local area, inappropriate in its context, resulting in an unacceptable impact on visual amenity and a failure to make a positive contribution to the local area. As such the proposed development will conflict with the provisions of policy CDMP3 of the Adopted Wyre Local Plan 2011-31, which seeks high standards of design for all development that is appropriate to the local context, and with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

 

  • The scale, and massing of the development would, by reason of the spacing between the front of the proposed development and the residential properties on the opposite side of the road, have an overbearing and oppressive impact upon those properties and result in unacceptable levels of overlooking to those properties to the detriment of the amenity of the occupiers of those properties. As such the proposed development will conflict with the provisions of policy CDMP3 of the Adopted Wyre Local Plan 2011-31, which seeks high standards of design for all development that is appropriate to the local context, and with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
