Amended Planning Application received for Coatham Links

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has received amended plans in respect of the application already lodged for the multi million pounds Coatham Links development.

The Council has learnt from Persimmon Homes that following the consultation process of their planning application, they have decided to amend the scheme, taking into account feedback received during that initial consultation.

They have told the Council that their intention now is to put leisure facilities in place of "bingo", such as ten pin bowling, which is classified as "D2 leisure uses", on the amended plans.

They also show revisions to the leisure centre incorporating a dance floor and performance space in the area previously allocated to 12-lane bowling.

The amended plans also incorporate design changes to some of the houses on the planning application but no increase in the number of dwellings and a slight move in the position of the coastguard station in recognition of earlier consultation.

Persimmon Homes has also confirmed that objections from Natural England, the Environment Agency and RSPB, which were raised during the earlier consultation process, have been withdrawn.

The amendments will now be considered within the statutory planning framework.

As part of this process, the Council is embarking on a three-week consultation exercise.

Any comments submitted in response to the original application will be taken into account in considering the application.

The Planning Committee is due to meet in March to consider the application.
