Success at Salcombe
28 September 2015 | Planning Applications
HPP is delighted to have obtained planning permission for the redevelopment of a former gas works site in Salcombe to form 300 sqm of A1, A2 and A3 ground floor commercial space and 5 residential units above. The LPA accepted HPPs argument that it would be unreasonable for the Council to insist on a marine based commercial use as the likelihood of any development coming forward would be minimal primarily due to the costs of decontaminating the site.
The site, which is located in a prominent position at a main junction in the town, is positioned close to the facilities and services within the town centre.
HPP were able to demonstrate that the proposal would result in an enhancement to this part of the Conservation Area. Furthermore, it was evident that the proposal was designed to provide high quality and sustainable housing in the locality that is sympathetic to both the context and character of the site and the surrounding built form.
