This was a Full Planning Application for the conversion of the existing building to provide four dwellings, ground floor commercial unit, and new vehicular access to the rear courtyard. A separate Listed Building Consent had also been submitted to the Local Planning Authority, ref. TWC/2022/0500.


The application site consisted of 119 to 121 High Street, Newport and a courtyard to the rear. The buildings were previously part of the neighbouring Haberdasher Adams Grammar School and last used for teaching and boarding accommodation. Each building was Grade II Listed and the application site was located within Newport Conservation Area.


Mr J Salt, the applicant’s agent, spoke in favour of the application citing the positive impact the development would have and the approval it had gained from highways and heritage officers.


The Area Team Manager stated that there had been two public objections to the second application relating to the site. No technical objections had been received. The application was being presented for a TRO contribution. An additional condition had been added and was presented in the update report.


Discussion focussed on the positive impact the development could have and on the existing traffic situation at the site.


On being put to a vote, it was unanimously:


RESOLVED – that DELEGATED AUTHORITY be granted to the Development Management Service Delivery Manager to GRANT FULL PLANNING PERMISSION subject to Condition(s), Informative(s) and the Applicant entering into a Section 106 Agreement in respect of a Traffic Regulation Order and Section 106 Monitoring Contribution(s).
