DPP are delighted to have won an appeal on behalf of Almscliffe Dhesi Developments Ltd for a mixed-use commercial development at the site of Kingsway House, Scunthorpe.
Having originally submitted a planning application in June 2021 for the development, which proposes the development of two open Class E commercial units and a coffee shop with drive-thru, the application was refused at Planning Committee against officer’s recommendation of approval on the grounds that it would result in the loss of trees and impact on a nearby local centre.
DPP were instructed to submit and manage the appeal against the LPA’s decision. The Inspector allowed the appeal, agreeing with DPP’s arguments against both of the reasons for refusal.
Speaking about the positive outcome, Oliver Corbett, Principal Planner at DPP, said:
We are delighted to receive the Inspector’s decision after a lengthy appeal process. This important development can now come forwards and provide significant benefits for Scunthorpe with new jobs, opportunities for biodiversity net gain within the site and improvements to the local highway network.
Neil Creeney, Director at Almscliffe Dhesi Developments said:
After a lengthy planning process, we’re glad to be able to move this important site forwards and bring about development that will be a real benefit to the local area, improving customer choice and creating brand new employment opportunities.
