PLANNING NEWS - YORK LANE/ALBANY STREET

A Mr Peter Sharma seeks planning permission to ingeniously link buildings in Broughton (Ref. 09/02572/FUL).

He wants to convert the office at 11–13 York Lane to form an ancillary function room for the boutique, 22-room Ballantrae Hotel at parallel 39–47 Albany Street. The proposal entails a glazed link between the properties, and a glazed rooflight to the new function room area.

New Town and Broughton Community Council may comment on the proposal at its 2 November meeting, in which case we'll get back to you with more news.
