Council says it will vigorously defend its decision to refuse
a developer permission to build 14 new homes in a four-storey
block on the site of a former garden centre in Dryburgh
week's planning applications committee (October 15) gave
the same applicant the go ahead to a smaller scheme comprising
10 flats. These would be built in a three-storey block.
earlier refusal (in April this year) will now be contested
by Fairdare Properties at a public inquiry to be held at
the town hall on November 19th 2002.
applications chairman Ravi Govindia said the committee felt
strongly that the scheme rejected in April was an overdevelopment
of the site:
is a site with a history of previous residential planning
consents. The only issues are the scale of the new housing
now proposed and its impact on the character of this attractive
council will argue that the 10 flat scheme now approved
is the right scale for this fairly constrained plot. We
will tell the inspector that the applicant is simply trying
to put too much on the site."
