Planning granted for Retirement Living Scheme

July 27th, 2018


A development of 37 contemporary retirement apartments located within the Branksome Park conservation area in Poole has received detailed planning approval following an appeal inquiry.

The Planning Inspector noted in his decision that “The proposed scheme represents a well-considered and high-quality response to the site and its context. Judged on its own terms, the scheme would make for a well-mannered development, enhancing the conservation area’s diversity and distinctiveness. In all these respects, the quality of the appeal proposal would exceed that of the existing dwellings. The proposed scheme would therefore result in an overall enhancement of the conservation area’s character and appearance.”
