Here is an update on the planning application made in September last year for erection of four flats following demolition of existing two one bedroom flats at 143 Calton Road.
The applicant is currently putting together revised proposals following withdrawal of the previous application in the light of overwhelming objections from local residents. Those immediately affected were recently invited to view new outline proposals which had lowered the scheme by a storey height.
Despite this the residents felt that the draft proposals did not yet do enough to respond to their concerns, particularly of an overbearing development with consequential loss of daylight for the homes below on St Mark’s Road. We await the results of this initial consultation and are hoping that we will see revised proposals prior to any new submission for planning consent which respond to these concerns as well as to the other objections raised against the original application.
