New Submission: Fairhaven Road - Westby Homes
NJL Consulting have submitted a planning application on behalf of Westby Homes for 33 apartments at the site of the Parkwater Hotel, St. Annes in Lancashire. The proposed development will include 10 affordable dwellings that will be made available to those that can’t afford to buy or rent on the open market and will deliver a scheme that is in keeping with the character of the local area.
NJL coordinated the application and prepared a Planning Statement in-house, which set out the planning case for the proposals. As well as reviewing local policy matters, this covered Fylde Borough Council's inability to demonstrate a five-year supply of deliverable housing land as is required by national policy.
The presumption in favour of sustainable development therefore applies and planning permission should be granted unless ‘any adverse impacts of doing so would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits, when assessed against the policies in this Framework taken as a whole.’
Following submission, NJL will closely monitor the application and work with Fylde BC to ensure that an implementable and commercially viable planning permission is secured as soon as possible.
