Decision details

Application Number 21/00349/FUL

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved


Construct 3 storey building comprising 9 student apartments (Use Class C4)

The Raven Group, Ellis Grove, Beeston NG9 1EP


The application had been brought to the Committee by Councillor J C Patrick.


There were no late items to be considered in relation to the application.


Councillor J C Patrick, Ward Member, addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.


The debate focused on the congestion around Ellis Grove and the lack of parking spaces provided as part of the application.  It was considered that the proposal was over-intensive for the site and that the increase in traffic and on-street parking would have a negative impact on neighbour amenity.


          RESOLVED that planning permission be refused, with the precise wording of the refusal to be delegated to the Chair of Planning Committee in agreement with the Head of Planning and Economic Development.




The proposed three storey building, which would comprise nine apartments in C4 Use Class, would represent an over-intensive form of development and additionally, by virtue of the lack of on-site parking, would have a detrimental impact on neighbour amenity. The development would be contrary to Policy 10 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (2014) and Policy 17 of the Broxtowe Part 2 Local Plan (2019).
