Boyer’s London office has secured planning permission for the Wellington Pub Company at Planning Committee for the conversion of a vacant former public house into nine new residential units in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
The site currently comprises a former public house on a corner plot off London Road, which has been vacant for a number of years. The proposals seek to make an effective use of this vacant corner plot site through converting and extending the existing building to provide nine valuable residential dwellings in the district.
The application was recommended for approval at Committee in February 2020, however members voted to defer the application so that officers could negotiate with the applicant on certain aspects of the scheme. Following a deferral, Boyer and the applicant worked with officers to address some of the concerns that were raised by members and the scheme was again recommended for approval at Committee in March 2020. Members were complementary of the amendments made to the scheme and the applicants proactive approach in addressing previous concerns raised. This positive approach resulted in members voting in favour of the application and planning permission being granted.
We are delighted to have secured consent and look forward to seeing the completed scheme. Boyer continue to work on a number of sites for the Wellington Pub Company throughout London and surrounding Counties.
