The Harbour Receives Reserved Matters Approval

Tue 24th Jan 2012

The reserved matters application for The Harbour scheme in Blackpool was approved by Blackpool Council at Planning Committee on 23rd January 2012.

A number of comments were raised by members of the committee in relation to:

  1. Drainage of the site – The Environment Agency (EA) has been consulted and is satisfied with the proposals.
  2. Landscaping – A landscaping strategy has been prepared and has given members an indication as to types of species proposed. It has been noted that as part of the enabling works application, some advanced landscaping works will be undertaken.

A committee member asked for thanks to be passed onto Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and the design team for the level of consultation and engagement they have undertaken with the local community.  Engagement is set to continue throughout the project to ensure the residents are kept aware of construction timescales and any potential changes.

The Planning Applications is due to be heard at Fylde planning committee in February.
