Back in December 2013, we pointed out that – in our understanding – the owners of Norwich House, which is the office block at the top of Knoll Road, had objected to the building being ‘classified’ as a place of employment. (http://wp.me/p3Dlu2-uY)
The world moves on. A planning application has, indeed, just been submitted “for the conversion of existing B1 Offices to form 16 one bedroom units and 37 two bedroom units.” Moreover, the application states that, under the General Permitted Development Order, “in determining the application, the local planning authority can only consider the highway, flooding and contamination issues in respect of the change of use”.
The application records that there are sixty three parking places on the site, which means that there will be one space per flat, with ten spaces for visitors. There are also forty six cycle spaces. This, the application deems to be sufficient.
