Revised plans for new homes for Portland

Published at 7:39am 15th April 2019.

A revised plan for some of the agreed homes on the former Underhill Junior School, Portland has been submitted to local planning officers.

The school site, which closed in July 2014, had previously been granted permission for 20 homes ranging from one to five-bed, despite more than 100 local objections, including from Portland Town Council and the Weymouth Civic Society.

The latest application, for amendments to the original designs for plots 4-8, at the Killicks Hill school has been submitted by Calibre Developments UK. The previous application, when permission was originally granted for 20 homes, was from another company.

Objectors at the time said the scheme was overbearing and would have an impact on the privacy of nearby homes.

The variation of conditions request asks for the partial demolition of the school buildings, the conversion of remaining parts of the school and the construction of new homes, access and parking and landscape arrangements as well as design changes to plots 4-8, previously agreed.
