DLP Planning Ltd has secured full planning permission at Committee for a residential development of 3 dwellings on land at High Matlock Road in Stannington, Sheffield.
The site previously comprised garden land associated with properties on High Matlock Road and had been divided to create a separate parcel of land to the end of an un- adopted road Webbs Avenue. The 1,320 sq.m site had become barren with vegetation removed by previous land owners. The area was of varied character with properties of differing scales and materials present. The site was within a Housing Policy Area and considered to be in a sustainable location close to local services. Permission had also been granted in 2008 for two bungalows on a similar site opposite the application site.
The application, submitted by a different agent, sought permission for a residential development comprising of 3 detached dwellings. As a result of a number of objections from local residents, and representations from a local MP whom raised the back land nature of development, the un-adopted road and drainage, DLP were asked to represent the applicant at Planning Committee and speak on his behalf.
Committee Members resolved to conditionally grant planning permission on the 9th August 2016.
