DLP (Planning) Ltd (DLP) have successfully secured full planning permission for a dwelling house in Sheffield.
The site is a brownfield site within the urban area of Sheffield and has been the subject of fly-tipping. The site is in a sustainable location offering easy access to public transport and the City Centre.
The main constraint to development was the sites location within Flood Zone 2, meaning that the site is determined as being at medium risk of flooding. Two previous applications for a dwelling house had been refused by Sheffield City Council on the site due to failure to pass the sequential test.
However, the application, prepared by DLP, demonstrated that there are substantial and significant planning merits in support of the application which clearly outweigh the failure to satisfy the Sequential Test. The development will make a small, but important, contribution to the Council’s housing supply, incorporate renewable energy measures and will remove an area of hardstanding, replacing it with a garden area.
DLP also represented the Client at Planning Committee where Members resolved to grant planning permission.
