Inspector rejects plan for bedsits in Cowling
8:00am Monday 25th February 2013 in News
Plans to turn a former nursing home near Keighley into bedsits have been rejected by a government planning inspector.
The conversion of the former Langdale Nursing Home in Cowling, would be inappropriate and generate noise, disturbance and extra traffic, said inspector Harold Stephens from the Planning Inspectorate.
“The overall result would be a discordant development significantly harmful to the character and appearance of the street scene,” he added.
