Changes given ap­proval

Rossendale Free Press - - News -

DE­VEL­OP­ERS build­ing three de­tached homes have suc­cess­fully ap­plied to amend pro­pos­als which were orig­i­nally ap­proved more than a decade ago.

The site, on land ad­ja­cent to Deans grave, off Helmshore Road, Hasling­den has been sub­ject to more than a dozen plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions, re­fusals and ap­peals over more than a decade.

As part of the changes, the ap­pli­ca­tion by de­vel­oper Mr Alan Wor­thing­ton was for the out­side of the build­ings to be ren­dered in­stead of en­tirely cov­er­ing them with nat­u­ral stone.

Sev­eral win­dows will now no longer be in­stalled.

Four coun­cil­lors voted in favour of the pro­pos­als at a meet­ing of the plan­ning com­mit­tee - af­ter an un­suc­cess­ful at­tempt by Coun Jimmy Ea­ton to see the ap­pli­ca­tion re­fused.

Coun An­drea Fletcher said it was a ‘tricky’ de­ci­sion, but was among mem­bers to back it for ap­proval.

Out­line plan­ning per­mis­sion was granted for the homes in 2005, with full per­mis­sion granted, af­ter ap­peal, in 2007.
