PLANNING permission has been granted for the 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.
The application was decided up at Wednesday night’s planning meeting at Harlow Council.
This adjacent area is currently scrub land, separated from no.96 by a row of trees along the boundary.
The five flats will 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.

The car park was hidden away back at base, in plans for neighbourhood office sent to residents for comment! No plans were sent for car park!! So the comments they got back was only half the story. What a stitch up !! Game, set and match to the corrupt..
If you work don't even bother putting your name down for one. My son applied for housing and as soon as they found out he worked he was to go private as they could not help him.
I received a copy of the letter and it clearly showed the much needed parking area the Dance school is having some sort of function tonight and cars parked all along Southern Way very dangerous so hopefully that practice will cease once there are additional parking spaces
The only car part showing in plans.. were the existing car park.. that were sent to both tower blocks. for comment. very underhand, less is more in their eyes. There is two car parks just over the rd in prentice place, but no, they choose to park as close to the entrance as possible regardless of double yellow lines on southern way, and space in public car park next door and over the road.
