A Ruddington hairdressing salon, chiropodist, photography studio, joinery firm and electrician will now need to find new premises – after an application for a housing development off Easthorpe Street was given the go ahead by Rushcliffe planners.
Seven new homes proposed by landowner Jeff Hind have been approved there under plans drawn up by Carlton Design Architecture Limited (application reference 17/01690/FUL). Just five villagers objected to the development.
Now numbers 35 and 37 Easthorpe Street will be completely demolished – the first being a residential property but the second still home to Tina’s Hair Studio and Gibson Sharp Chiropody. The commercial premises now occupied by Saul Isaac Photography at 39, Easthorpe Street are to be redeveloped – to include the demolition of the existing large conservatory (currently used as their studio) and the erection of a new building in its place. The business has previously indicated it would, reluctantly, be forced to relocate if plans went ahead – affecting eight members of staff.
Several other commercial buildings on the site will also be knocked down – with those occupied by Designer Fitted Kitchens & Bedrooms, an electrician’s workshop and a former motorcycle training facility all set to be bulldozed.
Then the current driveway to Orchard End will be improved to facilitate better access to the property – and, of course, to the seven new homes which will be built on the site (see the plans below).There are conditions attached to this planning approval, the details of which can be read on RBC’s Decision Notice >>HERE<< .
