Perne Road Shops

Elections aside, ward work continues as normal.

I have been chasing progress on the redevelopment of the Perne Road shops site. The planners have finally got back to the applicants with some informal advice, and essentially given their proposals for 19 flats on the site the thumbs down. The concerns raised include lack of car and cycle parking, cramped flats, overlooking of neighbours. It is only informal advice, but does suggest that the planners view the developers first proposal as an overdevelopment of the site.

I am pressing for them to get some amended plans together ASAP...
