Our Ref: 18/00323/FUL

Site: 52 Millbank Street, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV11 2HU

Proposal: Erection of two semi-detached dwellings


City of Wolverhampton Council as the Local Planning Authority hereby Refuse permission for the development described in the above application.

The reasons for the Council’s decision to refuse permission are:

1. The proposed dwellings would result in a form of development of cramped appearance. The proposal is not in keeping with the existing density, form and layout of the established pattern of development in the street, thus detracting from the established character and appearance of the street scene, creating a development less spacious in appearance and character.

Relevant UDP Policies: D4, D6, D8, D9 & H6; Relevant BCCS Policies: CSP4, ENV2 & ENV3.

2. The proposed dwellings, by reason of their height, bulk and position relative to the house/garden on the adjoining properties at and 290 Kitchen Lane and the existing property at 52 Millbank Street would have an unacceptable overbearing impact, reduce the amount of light, and have a detrimental impact on the outlook presently enjoyed by those houses, and especially their gardens.

Relevant UDP Policies: D7 & D8, ad BCCS Policy ENV3


Any policies referred to on this decision notice are the policies of the Black Country Core Strategy (BCCS), adopted 3rd February 2011 and the saved policies of the Wolverhampton Unitary Development Plan (UDP), adopted in June 2006, unless otherwise stated. The BCCS and UDP can be viewed at the Planning and Building Control Reception on the second floor of the Civic Centre or alternatively on the Council’
