Outline planning consent including means of access, was granted for a residential development on a prominent site at Mitchams Corner in the City, known as 1 Milton Road.
The site of 0.43 hectares, currently houses a mixture of retail and office buildings, and borders Victoria Road, Milton Road and Corona Road. The Portland Arms adjoins the site but will not be included in any development.
A residential development would greatly enhance the visual appearance of this significant and well known area. A redevelopment is a key objective for the Mitchams Corner Area Development Brief, a document published by the City Council. Developers are Burford Delta Ltd. Januarys are working on the project with local agent, Cheffins.
Outline planning consent was also granted for a residential development in Storey’s Way. This is an interesting site of just over 0.5 hectares and borders a conservation area within an attractive, well sought-after residential area of the City. Developers are local company, Camstead Ltd.
Colin Brown, director and head of planning at Januarys said: “We are now looking forward to focusing our energies on the full planning applications. Both important sites present some very interesting challenges.”
