Planning: Plans for new flats in Potter Street set to go before committee

General / Thu 30th Nov 2023 at 10:14am

PLANS for the conversion of existing offices into 1 x one bedroom flat and 4 x two bedroom flats in Potter Street are set to go before the Harlow Council planning committee.

There will also be the creation of thirty eight additional regular parking bays and three electric vehicle charging points and two disability parking bays.

Permission is sought for conversion of a vacant two-storey building to five flats, rearrangement of existing parking on building’s west side and creation of a link from this to an area of new parking, to comprise an additional 32 parking spaces, on land adjoining to the west. This adjacent area is currently scrub land, separated from no.96 by a row of trees along the boundary.

The five flats would comprise two two-bedroom flats at ground floor and two two-bedroom and a one-bedroom flat at first floor.

The total number of spaces created by the revised layout and new parking would be 39, including disabled person spaces and electric vehicle charging points.

Objections

  • Will cause disruption, a lot of traffic in area including heavy vehicles
  • Not the right place for flats
  • Adverse impact on residents in blocks and local area
  • Too many parking problems when people want to use community centre – Brenthall Towers hasn’t got many spaces for tenants; obstruction to on street parking and local bus service
  • Object if private housing – council housing is needed

The full application can be found at https://moderngov.harlow.gov.uk/documents/s24784/23-00036%2096%20Potter%20Street.pdf

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday December 6th at 7.30pm in the council chambers.

IT WILL BE PASSED. NO NEED FOR A MEETING; THE PLANNING COMMITTEE IS BLINKERD, WHERE IS THE COUNCIL HOUSING?

Why is the link to planning, showing applications from 1985 and 2020. It gives the impression no new applications have been made

Tony, they are all council flats for social rent from the council. You may also find out more about the council's Council House Building Programme on this site.

Deceitful, plans sent to residents, no plan of mega-car park.. should be stopped in its tracks.
