Suppose you noticed this plan has been passed. Objections by residents were mainly the parking problems, but developer put forward the theory not much worse than if they were converted into larger cottages. Has planned to have five parking spaces from the rear. Did take a look ... suppose is possible.

Aye I did see that our "planning committee" had passed the plans, I also noted the comments of one of the planning committee in the local press think it went something like
"flats, flats, and more flats"

If the flats are to be priced at 100,000 each as reported in the local press then I don't think the developer is providing affordable housing, he is just out to make as much money as he can.
The lack of parking spaces will just mean more cars parked on the road have the committee thought about the policy document E10

This sounds very encouraging and think it could work in the long term .. Canary Wharf of Church .. mmm has a ring to it somehow ...

Suppose it depends on whether the owners of the buildings wish to sell or develop Panther .. they will wish to make as much money as possible out of their buildings .. so will be a long haul.

As for the buildings near the Post Office ... well, the owner hasn't done much with the Palladium yet, has he .

Notice the Park Plan is getting a little further:-

It is good news but what about the likes of Rhyddings Park and other parks in Hyndburn that are in very poor condition.

re: Planning Applications

Here's one to make you think
Quote:
11/03/0608
Outline application for the erection of new buildings for: Research and Development Knowledge Park (Class B1b)(36,619 sqm); Light Industry (Class B1c)(30,048 sqm); General Industry, storage and distribution (Class B2/B8)(21,132 sqm); neighbourhood centre comprising retail shops (Class A1 limited to a maximum of 372 sq m for any one unit), restaurants/cafes/hot food takeaways (Class A3)(950 sqm), Nursery Creche (Class D1)(500sqm); Gymnasium/fitness centre (Class D1)(500sqm) and a maximum of 5 apartments. Associated car parking and servicing areas, roads, footpaths and cycleways, public transport facilities, landscaping and public open space. Land between Whitebirk Roundabout and Blackburn Road, Knuzden, Blackburn.
Taken from the planning applications listed for the April meeting of the Planning Committee.
Featured in the 1996 HBC plan as Employment site "U".
But look they want to build shops, restaurants/cafes and a gym, and provide emplyment for 2500-3000 people.
Details can be viewed in full at Planning Committee - Planning Applications (download the Word document to view)
The application 11/03/0608 is a 2003 application, plus there is no indication of who the Developer is...........could it be another Barnfield/HBC development, we will have to see. No doubt it will hit the local Headlines at some point.
Wonder what BwD will have to say about that.
One access to the site will be from the newly traffic light controlled roundabout at Whitebirk

I think it will work, the planning committee would look a little silly if they turned it down, employment for 2500-3000 people. I know it's close to the BwD border but is a great boost for Hyndburn.

No there is not much of interest this month, but HBC are well out of date with posting the applications on the website, only up to 7/3/08.

re: Planning Applications

How about this one, been a topic previous

Controversial church flats plan gets OK - News - Accrington Observer

Looking through the pages of today's LET I find on page 27 headed "commercialproperty"

A For Sale notice
Cannon Street Baptist Church, Accrington
A late 19th Century former church with planning consent for 16 apartments.
Also
For Sale
Oswald House, Rhyddings Street, Oswaldtwistle.
An extended late 19th Century building with planning consent for 24 apartments

Both adverts are under the same Agent.

That is just a good way to make money without all the hassle of doing the actual conversion works.

Clever person/s

Re: Cannon Street/Oswald Street .. yes, clever tactic hey Park .. got to find a buyer now... perhaps Tesco will buy Cannon Street for their Executives ...

re: Planning Applications

If i'm right in thinkin it has to be the factory that borders exchange street, fairfield street, as like you say katex, there wouldn't be enough room anywhere else.Just wonder if the residents there will put a fight up like at stanhill, personally speakin, i think it wld be gd move, its a derelict factory, and wld probably just be left to rot as we have seen with other buildings in hyndburn, ie, palladium, old firestation, no doubt someone will kick a fuss up tho!.

Had noticed that as well, but we are talking about HBC here anything is possible

Aye it's a very clever move, I wonder if HBC and the Planning Committee were aware of that move when they passed the plans
