Planning applications in Osler Road

We note that properties at both 18 and 20 Osler Road have sizeable planning applications on them and have obtained guidance from the planning officers about how these will be processed.

The same planning officer will deal with both the applications.

The applications are from two different applicants.

However the delegated decision for 20 Osler Road is currently due to be made sooner than the delegated decision for 18 Osler Road. We have asked whether the impending development at the adjacent property would be taken into account by the planning officer when considering the application at no. 20 but we are informed that this would not be a material consideration at that time.

Any queries, please get back to us – it’s a tricky one to explain!
