Planning Application 955 Pershore Road

A planning application has been submitted for two, three storey dwellings on the vacant lot at 955 Pershore Road. The details can be found here Comments supporting or objecting the proposal can be made here which must be made by 06/07/2022.

The building in this application appears to be identical to what was submitted in a previous application which was rejected, see the full report here. The summary was:

Residents had raised concerns largely in line with the planners findings:

  • it was too tall compared with the adjacent bungalow and Christ Church

  • it's side walls were close to the boundaries of the plot and would dominate the neighbouring properties and views from the street

  • it could be intended to be an HMO. Each property has 5 bedrooms and bathrooms plus study areas and a cinema room. As the application is for domestic use, the planner could not consider this concern.
