Tanner & Tilley working for their client Koori Developments have gained a unanimous approval at Planning Committee for 39 houses in Lorton Lane in Weymouth.

In a meeting of Weymouth and Portland Borough Councils Planning Committee it was decided that the proposals for 39 houses would be approved.

The approval will be subject to various conditions including an agreement for the provision of off site affordable housing and a contribution of £75000 education contribution to local schools.

Some residents raised objections however the Local Authority broadly praised the plans and agreed that as the development site had already been earmarked for around 30 dwellings that 39 was not against regulations.

Cllr Kevin Brookes commented “I think that the applicant on this occasion should be congratulated for coming up with such a good plan. “

John Montgomery of Tanner & Tilley Town Planning commented that “ Ourselves and our client are delighted with this approval and see that common sense has prevailed “
