As many of you may already know that the developers have re-submitted their planning application for Crescent Mews

They have submitted 2 separate applications:

HGY/2017/2999 - Block C - 7 flats

HGY/2017/2998 - Block B - 5 flats

The consultation ends 14th November.

Some people have already posted their objections to both applications, so I would urge as many of you to do the same. Many of the key objections will be the same as last time, particularly extra pressure on traffic in what is already a congested area as well as more pressure on basic infrastucture & amenities.

I will see if it's possible to do a 'Call In' as it's 2 separate applications which combined amount to 12 new residential units.

Here is the link to the application on the planning portal:

  • Email from one of the applicants for this development, Pini Herskovic (I have copied it to the PGRA and our local councillors):

    I am one of the owners (my partners CC’d in to this email) of 1-6 Crescent Mews and submitted the applications for residential development.

    I have obviously read the comments submitted to the applications online and have come across your website and the comments on it relating to our development.
    It has been our intention all along to try and engage with the local community as the applications we have submitted do not reflect our goal for the development. Finding your website I feel has presented us with that opportunity.
    If it would be possible for you to assist in us meeting and engaging with members of the community so we can share our plans for the site, explain the route we have taken and why and to listen and take on board all feedback provided to us by the local residents.
  • Thanks for your help with this, Liz. 

  • Many thanks for this, Liz - I was unaware of the new planning application until last week's Palace Gates Res Assn AGM.

    • I have just had some clarification from the Officer (Samuel Uff) who is dealing with the application.

      The original application which was refused was for Building A (HGY/2017/1961).

      The current submissions (HGY2017/2998 & 2999) are new applications for the 2 other buildings within the site. These will be assessed with regard to Class P of the General permitted Development Order.

      I will still see if it's possible to call in these 2 new submissions in.

    • I have been in touch with the Chair of Planning so will be submitting a 'Call In' request for this application. 

    • Many thanks Liz - that seems the right thing to do in the circumstances. I will take some time to look at the application documents over the next couple of days.

    • Happy to include any of your comments on my Call In request!
