Flats plan at Waterloo Road, Southampton, recommended for refusal
2:50pm Monday 12th August 2013 in Hampshire Business
COUNCILLORS have been recommended to refuse plans to build 12 flats at a site in Southampton.
On August 20 the city council’s planning and rights of way panel will run the rule over proposals for the site in Waterloo Road.
Developer SSL (Fund) General Partner Ltd wants to build a three-storey building on the plot of land, which is currently vacant, a two-storey residential building having been demolished five years ago.
The proposed building would contain a mixture of four onebedroom flats and eight twobedroom apartments, with associated parking and vehicle access from Almond Road.
But council officers have recommended that the panel refuse the application, saying the building does not help the council to meet its housing needs for families, is of a poor design and that the developer has not entered into an agreement with the authority about funding community improvement works.
