London boroughs' co-ordinated approach to car clubs

Refused against officer recommendation

Very frustrating planning decision in Essex this week. Our client's planning application for 200+ new homes was refused against officer recommendation. The planning and highway authorities both supported the development and a package of highway improvements had been negotiated and agreed with the the local highway authority. On the night, however, one Councillor stated his objection by mis-quoting the commitee report. He was corrected by officers; however, that was sufficient for the vote to go against the development. One reason for refusal was that the cumulative transport effect of this and a neighbouring development would be 'severe', despite that being a specific component of the approved Transport Assessment.

Celebrating 15 years in business

2020 is Entran's 15th year in business. We can't believe how quickly time has flown by. The Bristol office has moved into larger premises, twice, and we now have offices in London and Cardiff. We will be using this anniversary as an excuse to re-vamp the website and refresh our branding - and to have a few drinks with our clients and colleagues of course.

New homes in Rye

We were delighted to hear that Rother DC granted planning permission last night for 63 new homes in Rye, East Sussex. Entran have worked with Clague Architects and Iceni Projects for a considerable time on this project so it is gratifying that planning permission has been secured. A new access close to a level crossing required Entran to reach agreement with ESCC and Network Rail. Residential parking demand was also an area of protracted discussion and, ultimately, agreement.
