PLANS SUBMITTED FOR A FURTHER 93 HOMES AT FORMER HARCOURT SANDS SITE

Published:

The owners of the former Harcourt Sands Holiday Park in Puckpool have put in another planning application, to keep their scheme alive.

The heavily wooded, eastern part of the site would hold 93 houses if permission is granted for phase two of the development.

To comply with planning conditions originally determined in 2016, owners Conakry are asking for the approval of reserved matters — in this case, the appearance and layout of the site — despite ‘not intending’ to construct the site as it is laid out in plans.

Reserved matters have to be submitted within five years of permission being granted.

With the withdrawal of interest from original developer ZeroC, the new developer K-Haus is creating new plans.

So far two applications have been submitted by K-Haus, which are still under consideration by the Isle of Wight Council, for alterations to the previous plans.

However, they are not at the stage of redesigning phase two, according to planning agents Pegasus Group, so Conakry has been forced to submit the former plans.

Pegasus Group said, in submitted documents:

“The approval of this application is of fundamental importance to the delivery of the regeneration of this important site.”

To view the application, 21/00699/ARM, you can visit the council’s planning register. Comments will be accepted until May 24.

Permission has been given to demolish the once-popular holiday park and create 128 residential units, a 63-bed hotel, or 15-holiday units, with the provision of more car parking for Puckpool Park.

no- the heavily wooded area is needed to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and put oxygen back in.

what part of climate emergency do these idiots not get.

if the trees get cut down, then global warming increases as yet another part of the planets lungs are killed off.

i did not see hoardes of crying islanders huddled in shop doorways, homeless – so there is no need for this to be built – it needs returning to nature, not more concrete, pollution, congestion, rubbish and people

For goodness sake … greedy owners and developers … where are all the homeless that are going to live in them then – no they will be second homes or folk from mainland who just pack up and move here with no jobs, and not likely to get one but just because they want to live here. The island will be a concrete jungle soon enough !

and when the Island is completely concreted over, no one will want to live here, let alone move here. The developers will then move on and ruin the next AONB.
