New Submission: Rhinewood Country House Hotel - Westby Homes
NJL Consulting have submitted another planning application on behalf of Westby Homes, this time for 29 houses and 9 apartments at the site of the Rhinewood Country House Hotel in Glazebrook near Warrington in Cheshire. The proposals include 11 affordable houses and an area of public open space, in line with planning policy, and are sensitively designed to reflect the character of the local area.
NJL prepared a Planning Statement, Design and Access Statement and Sustainability Statement in support of the planning application. As the site is located within the Green Belt the key planning argument was a demonstration that the scheme wouldn’t have a greater impact on the function and openness of the Green Belt than the existing buildings.
To meet this policy test, the floorplate and volume of the existing buildings was measured, and the new scheme designed to ensure that level of development didn’t exceed this.
It is expected that the application will be determined in the autumn.
