Of particular interest in the current listing is the following entry:
RE: Southmark Building, 3 Barrington Road, Altrincham WA14 1GY
We have sent the following comments to the Planning Office as we have several concerns about the refurbishment etc of this building.
The removal of the balconies and painting all the metal window frames etc with grey aluminium will have the effect of making the building very drab and featureless.
Alteration of the steps and redesign of the existing entrance and re-locating disabled access is necessary, however the proposed scheme looks very basic.
Landscaping improvements are a plus, but a firm assurance must be obtained that trees will be planted. It should be noted that on the opposite side of the road (Myerson’s offices) trees were to be planted on both the Barrington Road and Stockport Road frontages, this has not happened. Can any conditions which are applied to granting the application be enforced?
Planning Ref 93143 – Riley’s Snooker Club, Bridgewater Road Altrincham 7 Storey Residential Development
Planning Ref 93153 – Land on Wharf Road, Altrincham erection of 99 dwelling multi-storey development
TBC Planning Committee rejected both the above applications last week.
Congratulations to Residents, Ward Councillors and to the committee for acknowledging these two applications were harmful to the area. These are two applications we can claim no credit for and it is good to see there is another way. In the run up to the local elections in May the candidates put in a lot of work which was reflected in the excellence of the speeches at the planning meeting.
