Planning Applications - Mar 2012
There is a nasty planning application (application no 2012/0712) for a 42 ft high telecommunications pole at the corner of Miles Lane and Ashcroft Park - nearly twice as high as the surrounding roof heights - which is a highly residential area.
The location of the pole will significantly impact on the amenity of this quiet and attractive residential area. The location will create a dangerous blackspot. It is totally out of keeping with the surrounding area and would be an absolute eyesore.
We have also just received notification of yet another application to develop the waste ground between the High Street and Church Street. If you originally objected you will have received notification as well.
We have still to analyse this application and discuss it. It is certainly better than their previous three attempts but it is still dense. It is premature to assess our position but if we think the development still falls short of what we consider is acceptable we shall object with vigour.
