Developer resurrects 'non-starter' plans to build drive-thru Burger King at a Newcastle police station

The developer behind controversial efforts to open a fast food restaurant at the disused West End police station has launched an appeal against city councillors’ decision to strike down the project.

Hadrian Property Investments’ plans for the Westgate Road site, which also included 15 flats, two shops and a dental surgery, were unanimously rejected by Newcastle City Council’s planning committee in September.

Dewley Farm, Dewley Farm Ponteland Road, Throckley, Newcastle, A surface mine for the extraction of up to 1.2 million tonnes of mineral comprising fireclay and coal - Planning REFUSAL

Dewley Farm, Dewley Farm Ponteland Road, Throckley, Newcastle, A surface mine for the extraction of up to 1.2 million tonnes of mineral comprising fireclay and coal - Planning Application

Chronicle Live website article from 10/12/20 on subject of planning application by Banks Mining for opencast mining at Dewley Hill near Throckley

EXTRACT

Dewley Hill coal mine 'inappropriate' for Newcastle green belt and should be rejected, planners say

The project, which could see 800,000 tonnes of coal and 400,000 tonnes of fireclay extracted from Dewley Hill during a three-and-a-half-year operation, has been met with a fierce backlash – with more than 24,000 objections lodged.

Ahead of a hearing at the city council’s planning committee next Friday, December 18, local authority planners have issued their report into the plans and advised councillors to refuse permission for the contentious scheme.

They concluded that the surface mine would be “inappropriate” in the green belt and “cannot be considered ‘environmentally acceptable’”.

EXTRACT

Application Reference Number: 2019/0300/01/DET

Proposal: A surface mine for the extraction of up to 1.2 million tonnes of mineral comprising fireclay and coal, with associated formation of vehicular access onto Ponteland Road (B6323) and associated temporary site compound buildings and water treatment areas, with restoration to agricultural and ecological uses including, woodland, species rich grassland and multi-user access routes, as amended by information received 4 December 2019 including addendum to Environmental Statement, and further information and second addendum to Environmental Statement received 15 June 2020.

Follow up on the above and other recent posts

On the "new 2020" NCC Planning Portal on 23/12/20 this in respect of above application 2019/0300/01/DET

EXTRACT

Decision: Refused

Decision Issued Date: 22-12-2020


From the Decision Notice within the documentation

EXTRACT

Planning permission refused for the following reasons:

1. The proposed development would not be environmentally acceptable with respect to landscape and visual impacts and impacts on biodiversity during both the operation and restoration of the site and could not be made so by planning conditions or obligations, contrary to Policies DM20, DM23, DM28, DM29 and DM32 of the Newcastle upon Tyne Development and Allocations Plan 2015-2030, Policies CS1, CS15, CS18 and CS20 of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne 2010-2030, Policy EP3 of the Northumberland Minerals Local Plan and paragraph 211a of the National Planning Policy Framework .

The proposed development would not provide national, local or community benefits which clearly outweigh its impacts (taking all relevant matters into account, including residual environmental impacts) to justify the grant of planning permission contrary to Policy 211b of the National Planning Policy Framework and Policy CS20 of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne 2010-2030.

2. The proposed development would represent inappropriate development in the Tyne and Wear Green Belt, as it would not preserve its openness and conflict with its purposes. The harm, by reason of inappropriateness, and any other harm, is not clearly outweighed by other considerations and so Very Special Circumstances do not exist to justify inappropriate development in the Green Belt.

The proposed development is contrary to Policy CS19 of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne 2010-2030.

Viz: Murray House, Nr. Stanhope Street. It is no more. The players started hard and worked up until the break (for Christmas). The rough tarmac wilderness area is gone and so is Murray House. All that's left is a big pile of broken bricks and a sea of mud behind. Neighbours put out by rise in activity. There's a rumour the new building will have a pitch on its flat roof. Footpath suspended.

The new football centre is getting built quickly. The sides for the rooftop pitch are already in place. It's a pity that the local kids' football pitch was destroyed first (please see Ken's Google Earth images above). Also the footpath to town was closed for us . Photo taken last week. Misquoting Bonzo Dog this project is what I would describe as a 'prefabricated - Concrete Coal Bunker'.
