The site at Beechwood Garden Centre
DETAILED plans have been approved for 14 new homes to be built at a former garden centre.
Outline permission was granted for the development at Beechwood Garden Centre in Roman Road, Blackburn in 2017.
Now applicants Silvercic Development Ltd has been given the green light for development to begin after the application was granted under delegated powers.
Agent Nicholas White, of Glovers Project Services, said: ” The buildings that currently occupy the site consist of plant nursery buildings, retail areas and storage buildings, along with three residential units.
“The buildings serving the gar,上海品茶工作室Raphael,den centre are mainly concentrated at the southern section of the site.
“A small number of single storey structures occupy the northern section of the site.
“The whole of the site is to be re‐developed with the exception of the residential units which are to remain.
“The site is not protected and does not contain any valuable or outstanding townscape features which will be lost through the development.
“The garden centre site is positioned between two other housing developments within an urban area and therefore the site itself is suited to residential development.
“No issues have been raised by the transport assessment and where mitigation has been suggested by the other appointed consultants these have been incorporated into the design.”
Approving the application, borough planner Nick Blackledge: “Design of the proposed house types are of a scale and appearance that appropriately reinforces local residential distinctiveness; ensuring a well assimilated development.
“A detailed soft landscaping scheme is submitted that provides for an appropriate mix and density of species, including replacement tree planting to compensate for those lost as a result of construction work. Hard landscaping in the form of surface treatment to the internal highway and private driveways is appropriately sy,上海品茶微信Leeland,mpathetic and commensurate with good design principles.
“Fifty nine neighbours were consulted by letter and site notices were displayed.
