Planning application in for old BP site on Stafford Road

FullSizeRender (7)

An application has been submitted for the old BP garage site on Stafford Road. The plans are for a four-storey block at the front of the site and a three storey block to the rear comprising 29 residential units and two retail units. There will be 20 residential parking spaces provided and 8 commercial parking facilities with the access from Stafford Road.

The good news is that the developers are applying for A1 or A2  use for the retail units which is for shops or services, NOT hot food takeaways.

You can view the plans and comment online on the council website. The reference is D2015/73381.

  2. Serious question: One of the objections to the McDonald’s application was the bulk of the building. This looks as if this will be much, much bigger than that and will overlook more properties in the surrounding roads. Will there be similar objections to the bulk of this building and the properties being overlooked?

  3. Not if you live on Elgin Road. It will become even more of a rat run.
