Deadmill Lane Application Poses Harm to Natural and Built Heritage

BPT has submitted our response to the application at the Deadmill Lane site. Our objection can be read here, or via the BATHNES planning portal (see application 20/00491/OUT).

Whilst we are supportive of the principle of affordable housing, we could not support the proposal on grounds of principle of inappropriate development, significant harm to the open character of the Green Belt, landscape setting of the World Heritage site, indicative setting of the Bath conservation area and Cotswolds AONB, harm to the setting of a NDHA, and the impact on local residential amenity.

We do not consider that the public benefit or special circumstances outweigh substantial harm to multiple heritage assets and the Green Belt.
