Paradise Lane Development Update

Further to the fantastic support from many villagers over the last few years in opposing the to-tally inappropriate development proposals submitted for the site at the end of Paradise Lane that resulted in refusal by CDC of two planning applications (one at planning committee), and dis-missal by the Planning Inspectorate of a subsequent appeal, I would like to provide an update on the latest development plans for the site. The appeal dismissal effectively dictated that the applicants would need to leverage their exist-ing assets as opposed to any substantial demolition and rebuild proposals that had been submit-ted in previous applications. To that end, both Little Stoney and The Cottage are now to be re-tained, with planning applications for modest extensions / alterations to the NE aspect of both properties being passed in the last few months and work to this effect commenced on Septem-ber 1st. From a heritage perspective it is clearly great for Milcombe to see that The Cottage, the last remaining one of a row of four historic workers cottages dating back to the late 17C, is not only to be retained but actually lived in again for the first time in nearly 30 years! For those concerned in the associated ecology matters, namely impact on a known bat roost, I can confirm that an appropriate Habitats Regulation licence has now been granted by Natural England. There remains just one aspect of the site development that is outstanding, relating to the con-struction of a new dwelling on the approved outline area to the north of The Cottage – it is ex-pected that a formal planning application will be submitted imminently. The applicants have shared draft proposals for the new dwelling but these plans have highlighted a number of sig-nificant concerns with respect to the proposed siting, height, and materials and villagers may be contacted should their support be required, so our voice can be heard yet again!, by CDC plan-ning to ensure that any development is appropriate for this historic part of our great village.
