Developer appeals over homes plan for laundry
AN appeal has been launched for plans to create six houses in the centre of Salisbury after Wiltshire Council turned down the application.
Reflect Contractors want to demolish the industrial warehouse at 12-14 Salt Lane, but retain the former Salisbury Steam Laundry facade, and create six houses with parking.
The plans involved an extension and alteration of the frontage building to provide three small houses with three mews-style houses constructed in the courtyard.
Wiltshire Council refused planning permission because it felt the proposed third storey to the steam laundry building would “introduce an incongruous element” that would not sit comfortably with the existing building or its neighbours.
But the developer says the third storey is essential to the viability of the scheme and complies with the council’s core policy on heights for new development.
A planning inspector will now consider the appeal based on written statements and a site visit.
