Planning officers reject proposals for new dental practice in Peterborough
Planning officers have rejected proposals to create a new dental practice in Peterborough.
The city council has turned down an application to open a new surgery in Dogsthorpe Road. The application was submitted with a view to converting the premises, which were used as a home for multiple occupants, into a dental practice.
Issues related to access and parking were highlighted in a report published by planning officers. Explaining the decision to turn down the application, officers described access to the practice as “convoluted” and added that additional parking for the surgery would have a negative impact on local residents. The statement also suggested that converting the property into a dental surgery would increase noise levels and disturbance from vehicles.
The report also concluded that the applicants had failed to provide information about suitable, safe access to the premises. The plans submitted to the council relate to a six bedroom house. The proposals included plans to make the property into a dental practice with a flat above.Join this Discussion
