What was that quote from one of our Councillors......Flats, flats, and more flats.
So each house is going to equate to half a shop, where's the block of flats going

What about car parking, mind the new residents will be able to walk to the shops in the centre

The application is now shown on HBC's website, but it does not identify which of the two works it is. It just states " a manufacturing works" has anyone any idea are both works still operational.

re: Planning Applications

On the subject of Flats/Apartments, it would seem from the article in the LET that the experts feel that to many flats/apartments have been built, and that they will not sell. Investers wo have bought to let, are not able to let, and not able to sell.

Looking at the lastest planning applications on the BwD website it looks very much like the developers have thought about it, so the applications now are for affordable housing.............have the developers seen the light at last?

Was just going to say Mez .. I took a look as I drove up to your house the other day for tea (thank you very much that pork and apple meat loaf was brilliant ..). Couldn't see much for the trees, but I got the impression the bottom works were still open ? Didn't go right to the top as had to turn into your house.. so go out and have a look ... LOL.

I thought the flats would sell quite well Park, but obviously not then ?

Did E-Mail HBC enquiring why delay on Planning Applications/Decisions late. Just got one back to say, had been passed to this department, but so far no explanation from them. I now expect, however, to get a reply just to say they are now up .. await with interest. Only up to the 21/3/08 though. Used to do them every 11 days.

Are you meaning the one on the left going up exchange street, facing the old Spring Hill Infant school.
I did see low loaders going in and out of that building several weeks ago, could have been moving all the machinery out.
It would have been better if the application had identified the site. It means you would need to visit Scaitcliffe Towers to view te application and attached drawings.
At the end of the day if it is right accross from you, its got to be better looking out at new houses than an old factory.

I was only going off what was published in the LET, but the estate agents do know what is selling and what will not sell.

It's busy there now with the delivery lorries and workers cars arriving, so what's the difference

If you read the planning application for the site, you will see it mentions "associated roads" I assume that would be to improve access to and from the site.
We don't know if it is that works, it may well be the old Lang Bridges site, then there will be problems on Fairfield street because that building is directly opposite Fairfield Nursery, but also fronts Exchange street.

The planning application just indicates
Land currently occupied by a manufacturing works Exchange street.

re: Planning Applications

Well i walked past there on my way into town today, and looked at both factorys, looking at the one facing the nursery, theres no way you could fit 98 houses on there, just doesn't seem possible, ive never really taken much notice of them before, didn't realise how big the other factory was, my gran also tells me that during the second world war they made munitions there, and they painted the roof green and brown to depict moorland, as nobody was allowed to have any lights on, and there was no street lights, so not to attract german bombers.

Thought it may be that works, it covers a lot of ground goes through to Chester street, which has pens & garages at the top end. I wonder if the houses will be the affordable type, and will the scheme include yet another block of flats. Think we will have to wait and see on that one.
May go in to Scaitcliffe Towers and have a look at the plans.The sooner HBC updates the website to include attached plans the better, people will then be able to view the applications without the need to go in to the Towers.

re: Planning Applications

just chipping in here because I don't know your local regulations , but in my area where apartment/flats complexs are constructed the local planning department usually requires that there is at least one designated place for each unit and one visitor parking space for every two units , all these parking spots are off street , maybe something that could be incorporated into planning applications , just an idea.
thanks

HBC also have policy documents relating to new build and car parking provision, but it would seem that they don't always comply with the document, as has happened in the recent past.

re: Planning Applications

I see from the HBC's latest list of planning applications that the old James street working men's club is the subject of a change of use, from WMC to Function rooms.

http://www.hyndburnbc.gov.uk/site/cu...08TO040408.pdf

HBC are still way behind with the list of applications, they must be over worked
