Globe’s appeal against Newark and Sherwood District Council for Unity Holdings has been allowed by the Planning Inspectorate.
The application to convert the former Piano School on Mount lane in Newark on Trent to provide 14 rooms, 5 self-contained studios and 4 apartments within the Newark Conservation Area had been rejected earlier in the year by Newark and Sherwood’s Planning Committee.
Having reviewed case prepared by Globe and considered the planning balance, Inspector Caroline Mulloy concluded that the proposal would make a modest contribution to housing supply in a sustainable town centre location and help to ensure that a non-designated asset is retained in a viable use. She considered that “these benefits would significantly outweigh any very limited harm arising from the proposal.”
Unity Holdings are now looking to progress the conversion as a further addition to their portfolio of high quality developments.
