Depressing minor amends on Dalby Square proposal
The following press release from TDC is just depressing. With all the work that is going on for a new future for Margate and Cliftonville. The best the developers can come up with is some mediocre designs for the strip of green space at the top of Dalby Square.
Minor amendments have been made to a planning application for the former Warren Court Hotel and the adjacent land in Dalby Square.
The application is for 12 three-bed houses and 8 two-bed flats, including the retention of the façades of 21-23 Arthur Road. The original application was submitted in late July by Town and Country Housing Group.
The amendments will see the roof shape changing on the proposed houses that front Dalby Road, while the balconies have also been removed from the houses fronting both Dalby and Arthur Road.
The revised drawings can be viewed on the council's website using UK Planning under reference number F/TH/10/0581. The plans can also be viewed by visiting Thanet's Gateway Plus in Cecil Street, Margate from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, with extended opening until 8pm on Thursdays. Thanet's Gateway Plus is also open from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays.
As a result of the submission of the amended plans, the deadline for comments on the application has now been extended to Saturday 4 September 2010.
The application is likely to be considered by the council's planning committee in September 2010.
Please someone with a vision propose something decent.
