Planning application 15F/2296 was finally given the go-ahead by the City Council's Planning Committee on 11th October. We had objected to the proposed three-storey apartment block because of its impact on properties in Halewood Road - notably the Brown Cow's beer garden - and what we considered to be its incongruous design: a 'building on stilts' supported in part by the unattractive metal-roofed shed in Lower Sandfield. The Council's planning officers, however, disagreed with us, saying that the proposed 'oversail' by the upper floors 'adds an interesting design feature to the scheme'.
