Proposal

Full application for change of use of the existing building from use class D2 to use class C3, to include four 2-Bedroom apartments and two 1-bedroom apartments, proposed new four storey apartment building including twelve 1-bedroom apartments, and associated external works and infrastructure at The Fitness Company, 38 Spring Gardens, Spalding.

Consideration was given to the report of the Development Manager upon which the above application was to be determined, including his recommendations, copies of which had previously been circulated to all members.

 

AGREED:

 

That, contrary to Officers’ recommendations, planning permission be refused on the grounds that the proposals constitute over-development of the site and the design of the new block of apartments is out of keeping with the historical nature of this part of Spalding and would result in significantly detrimental harm to the Spalding Conservation Area and the setting of nearby Listed Buildings.  Further the proposed arrangements for refuse/recycling storage and collection would be harmful to the amenity of the area.
