Objection
Application Date:
2021-08-19
Application Notes:
The Town Council object to this application on a number of grounds: The proposed apartments appear ‘bulky’ and could be seen as possible overdevelopment with a significant impact on the street scene. The effect on the visual amenity of the Reabrook area will also be significant. There are no parking provisions for the affordable housing apartments and no mention of spaces for visitor parking. This lack of spaces will have an impact on neighbouring areas and cause traffic issues for local residents. There is also a shortfall of open space provision with no amenity space provision for families who may live there.
