PLANNING has again been granted for the demolition of the former furniture depository and bus garage buildings and erection of five town houses, ten flats and three commercial A1 Retail / A2 Office Units at Lansdown Road, Bude.

Cornwall Council has given the go-ahead despite objections from Bude-Stratton Town Council who said the height of the corner building would be overbearing on the street scene and incongruous to the neighbouring properties. They also had concerns about the lack of parking spaces.

The latest application proposed amendments to previously approved plans which granted consent in 2016 by removing a communal undercroft parking area which would have provided 16 spaces to serve the whole development. Unit 10 has changed from a one-bed flat to a three-bed town house through the provision of accommodation in the roof.

The approval notice said: “Whilst the comments of the Town Council are noted, a number of concerns raised relate to matters considered on the original permission rather than the design changes currently proposed.”
