Weymed s73 Application

Lanpro’s Planning team negotiated a complex and challenging planning application to secure consent for Essex Nursing Homes Ltd via a S73 planning application to deliver 14 new dwellings located within the town centre of Bury St Edmunds.

Planning permission was approved in 2013 for the redevelopment of the site for 15 residential units, however a s73 application was required to amend the approved plans to avoid alterations to the route of a private right of way, reduce the number of dwellings and changes to the internal layout of the extant consent.

Key issues included the site’s sensitive location in a conservation area and proximity to listed buildings. The previously agreed s106 package also remained given the original consent had commenced and the site benefits from an extant consent the fall back in this case was a material consideration.
