OUTLINE PLANS FOR FIVE PROPERTIES GET GREEN LIGHT
Outline planning permission was granted to build five detached homes in Rothbury.
And the plans for land at Silverton Lane were listed for approval at last night’s north area planning committee meeting, despite five letters of objection from residents and county councillor Steven Bridgett. But committee members agreed with Northumberland County Council planning officers and gave the scheme the thumbs up.
MAJOR EXTENSION TO HOLIDAY PARK
Bourne Leisure was given the green light for plans to extend Haggerston Castle Holiday Park last night.
The proposal included 122 new caravans, six lodges, an owners’ club, three lakes, new internal access roads, play areas and associated landscaping. The application was recommended for approval and the decision was unanimous. The applicant’s agent explained that a number of the objections from residents actually related to a further proposed expansion of the park, which didn’t form part of this application.
SITE VISIT AHEAD OF CARE SCHEME VOTE
Members of the north area planning committee were asked to take part in a site visit for plans to build 58 residential extra-care homes in Alnwick. The application has been submitted for land south of Weavers Way, Alnwick, as part of a wider scheme and outline permission has already been granted.
NO DECISION ON TURBINES YET
A decision on plans for two 34.5metre- tall wind turbines near Felkington Farm, Norham, was deferred by the county council’s planning and environment committee on Tuesday night. Despite seven objections from local residents, planners had recommended that the scheme be approved.
