The Planning Review Panel will meet to review the planning decision for the proposed flats on Corunna Green Space, on 19th March at 11:30am.
The hearing will take place in the Committee Rooms at the City Chambers.
We would encourage as many people as possible to attend this meeting, although you will not be able to comment. We expect the Review Panel to enforce the City Development Plan and the St Vincent Crescent Conservation Appraisal by upholding the refusal for this application.
St Vincent Crescent, Corunna & Minerva Street Residents’ Association have created a document explaining why it’s so important to save this Green Space…

Update 19th March
We are please to announce that at the meeting of the Planning Review Panel on Tuesday 19th March, the appeal by developer Nixon Blue was refused, unanimously!
The application, on a green site within a conservation area, was refused in part due to the developer failing to address the principle element i.e. the proposal was contrary to the City Development Plan to preserve the green open space for the use of the community. The site, within a conservation area was recognised, as was the detrimental nature of the proposed building to the character of the area. Opportunity to develop the site in its current use had not been given due consideration.
It is to be noted that Nixon Blue bought out the bowling club members in the full knowledge that they did not have planning permission.
Here is how the press reported it…
