Thank you so much to our speakers from Carlisle City Council, No5 Barristers’ Chambers, ACTion with Communities in Cumbria, Solway Communications, Cows and Co and South Lakeland District Council.

Gooseholme Bridge, Kendal - Approval Granted for Demolition

August 2019 Planning

An application was submitted to Cumbria County Council for the demolition of Gooseholme Bridge in Kendal. The bridge is located to the eastern edge of Kendal Town Centre, on the River Kent and within the conservation area. The existing bridge sustained significant damage during Storm Desmond and has been closed to the public since late 2015. The bridge provides an important pedestrian link to the town centre.

PFK have been working alongside Cumbria County Council and Story Contracting to develop a scheme for a replacement bridge, for which funding has now been secured. The replacement bridge has been designed to improve water flow beneath it, thus reducing flood risk.

Approval for the demolition of the existing bridge was granted by the Development Control and Regulation Committee on 13 August 2019.

We look forward to continuing to support this project as it progresses.

Extended Permitted Development Rights

May 2019 Planning

Extended ‘Permitted Development Rights’ are due to come into force later this week,  the updated legislation will allow for greater flexibility for the change of use of commercial and town centre uses and also make permanent the permitted development rights for larger home extensions. The Government has decided not to introduce permitted development rights for upward extensions. This suggestion proved to be particularly controversial when the Government consulted on these plans in late 2018.

The legislation creates a new class, JA of the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO), which allows local authorities to consider proposals for the conversion of shops and other high street uses such as takeaways and launderettes to offices under the prior approval process. Class M already allows retail and sui generis uses to be converted to residential without the need for planning permission, but the new regulations would allow takeaways to be converted to housing.

The legislation also makes permanent the provisions for ‘Larger Home Extensions’, which were due to come to an end on the 30 May 2019. These permitted development rights allow for domestic extensions of up to 8 metres (from 4 metres) for a detached house and 6 metres (from 3 metres) for all other houses. There is a prior approval process to follow and neighbour consultation does take place; however, these rights remove the requirement to submit a detailed planning application.

Existing permitted development rights to convert buildings used for storage to residential use, due to end on 10 June 2019, will not be extended.

Approval Granted - Brampton Infant School

April 2019 Planning

Full planning approval has been granted for the conversion of the former Brampton Infant School Lunch Hall to a residential dwelling. The scheme involved the demolition and re-build of the frontage to provide undercroft parking and the provision of a excellently detailed new 3 bedroom house in this non-designated heritage asset.

We are delighted to have been involved in securing the sympathetic reuse of an otherwise redundant building within the Brampton Conservation Area.

The detailed scheme was approved by Carlisle City Council’s Development Control Committee earlier today.

Appeal Allowed for Removal of Local Occupancy Condition in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

March 2019 Planning

We are delighted to receive confirmation that our appeal against a local occupancy condition imposed on a barn conversion in the Yorkshire Dales National Park has been allowed.

The planning condition relates to a historical planning consent granted by Eden District Council in the late 1990’s; however, the property is now located with the extended Yorkshire Dales National Park area.

PFK Planning submitted a planning application to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which was refused by their Planning Committee. An appeal against this decision was made in July 2018, supported by our grounds of appeal which outlined the justification for the removal of the condition in these circumstances. The condition was not considered to be precise or enforceable.

On the 27th March 2019, we received the appeal decision which confirmed that the Planning Inspectorate upheld our appeal against the retention of the condition. The Inspector agreed that the condition was not sufficiently precise and also found no conflict with Policy RUR3 of the adopted Local Plan.
