Despite numerous design alterations to respectfully address arboriculture, drainage and heritage issues. The process was not helped by a consistent turnover of council officers and new planning policy coming forward which was particularly pertinent to this site and the proposals submitted.

In September 2019, the application was amended to focus on conversion of the Police Station itself, with the cell blocks and outbuildings removed from th submission to form a Phase 2 application at a later stage.

After further considerable dialogue with the officers (during which time another new case officer was appointed) and the client involving local Ward Members, the application was positively determined in May 2020.
