In November, we observed a steady influx of applications, primarily centred around replacement dwellings or the renovation of existing properties within the ward. While numerous decisions were reached during this period, the backlog of pending applications is on the rise. These delays have recently garnered attention in the local press, prompting new appeals for non-determinations this month. Notably, there have been several proposals for site-splitting in the Conservation Areas, and once again, a few plots are under consideration for multiple concurrent applications.

Draft BCP Local Plan

The draft of the BCP proposed Local Plan has been released, emphasising energy-efficient and sustainable development. However, it is observed that most applications deviate from this vision and merely aim to meet the Local Plan’s minimum requirements.
