The ECE Planning team have been very busy at Planning Committee this week and we are delighted to have secured resolution to grant planning permission for three different schemes. This is the result of months of hard work, liaising with local authorities; balancing the integrity of our clients proposals alongside the requirements of local stakeholders.
Below is an outline of the approved schemes:
Marquis of Granby, Sompting
Working closely with Adur District Council officers, ECE Planning sought to meet our client’s aspirations of maximising the development potential of the former Marquis public house in Sompting whilst balancing design and heritage considerations.
The Council has approved the proposed scheme of 9 residential dwellings comprising of 1 x 3 bedroom and 8 x 2 bedroom apartments. The approved plans will allow redevelopment of the redundant site whilst responding sensitively to the context of the immediate area, specifically the Sompting Conservation Area.
Eastbourne House, Eastbourne
Our client, a retired Architect, wanted to create a home of outstanding architectural design for his family that also provided for accessible living. Being wheelchair dependent, our client has struggled to find a permanent home which marries the practicalities of accessible living with the exacting design standards of a former Architect!
The proposals, which Eastbourne Borough Council have this week recommended for approval, comprise of the replacement of an existing two storey dwelling, known as ‘The Tiled House’ with a one storey, high quality, environmentally sensitive four bedroom home.
Rosslyn Park Football Club, London
Wandsworth Borough Council have granted advertisement consent that ECE Planning put forward on behalf of our clients, Rosslyn Park Football Club. The proposal will see the removal of existing LED advertisement displays and the erection of a single, double-sided LED Digital Screen.
Rosslyn Park is a not-for-profit, community-based rugby club. The replacement of the advertising screens is an integral part of ongoing investment in ground improvements at the club which has enabled installation of the current 4G pitch and will allow for the future replacement of the stands, that will in turn benefit the community for the foreseeable future.
