North Berwick landmark to make way for housing
A revised plan to knock down a commercial garage in North Berwick to make way for 16 flats was given the green light this week.
East Lothian Council’s planning committee approved the residential development at the Bass Rock Garage at a meeting on Tuesday.
Development of the site for housing had attracted multiple objections from neighbours and North Berwick Community Council in the past, so Councillor David Berry called for the revised application from the Bass Rock Partnership to be fully debated, rather than delegated to planning officers for a decision.
Backing the new plan Brian Stalker, development manager, told councillors that there was already planning consent for two, three storey buildings of 16 flats at the Station Hill site. The revised application was for the erection of one three storey building containing 16 flats.
Twenty-four parking spaces were proposed, with a ground floor pend formed to provide pedestrian and vehicle access from the public road at Station Hill into the rear part of the site.
