Graphics depicting the proposed appearance of a new Co-operative store that is due to be built on a Moorlands high street have been released. Applicants SEP Properties Limited were granted planning permission by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) to transform the Blacks Head Inn pub into the shop in 2020.
Graphics depicting the proposed appearance of a new Co-operative store that is due to be built on a Moorlands high street have been released.
Applicants SEP Properties Limited were granted planning permission by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) to transform the Blacks Head Inn pub into the shop in 2020.
However, in September the vacant public house partially collapsed, causing Draycott Road to be shut by police after debris spilled onto it.
The remainder of the building was then demolished for safety reasons.
Just over a fortnight earlier, in August, the applicant had submitted a request to discharge a number of conditions within the original planning permission approval, some of them regarding demolition and construction permissions. This request was refused by SMDC planning officers on October 18.
The applicants have since submitted fresh plans which propose the “redevelopment” of the site, differing from the “change of use of the public house” term used in the initial application.
Because the original application was for a building that is now no longer there, a fresh application was required for the new-build.
The new-build is to be almost identical in appearance to Blacks Head Inn pub before it was demolished.
Now, new graphics have appeared in a separate planning application for the site, which is asking for advertisement consent.
Submitted on December 14, planning documents show how the outside of the building would look once built, along with the advertisement installations, if proposals are passed.
In a heritage statement, applicant Ms Jacqui Kenyon of Co-Op said: “We have tried not to over crowd the building but still make it appealing to its customers.”
Car park signage is also depicted in the documents, which shows the entrance from New Road.
These plans are set to be assessed by SMDC ahead of a decision as to whether to approve or refuse them.
