Southwold Town Council to object to the outline planning application for 9 houses on the Southwold Police Station site.
At a well attended meeting last night Southwold Town Council considered the request from Suffolk Police Authority for planning permission for nine 1 / 2 bed properties on the police station site.
The site has been up for sale for a period of time, and the Police Authority are now applying for outline planning permission for nine market houses.
The council members received a presentation from Cllr Jeans, Chair of the Town Council Planning and Development Cttee, which set out the background to the marketing of the police site and its links to the vacant former fire station site, the request as detailed within the planning application, and the planning policies to which consideration should be given when considering the application.
The Town Council had, in 2015, commissioned a report from Ingleton Wood on a design code for the then vacant properties at the Front of the Town (which include both the police and fire station sites) and the Town Council requirements for the Front of Town design framework were set out at the meeting together with the preferred building out of the site as described within framework and within the emerging Neighbourhood Plan,
