54/17            Questions by residents of Shenley Parish

The Chairman welcomed Mr and Mrs Morris and Mr and Mrs Bury to the meeting. Mr Morris addressed the Council regarding concerns with planning application 17/1299/HSE. Mr Morris stated that he had no objection to the house itself that is being proposed, his worries lie in the potential disruption that may be caused to the roads and drains along Woodhall Road as was the case with the development of 26A. He requested that a condition is imposed to ensure the development is time sensitive in order to cause the least disruption possible.  Along with this a condition to ensure that developers park off road in order to not disrupt the traffic.  Finally he opposed the request for a carriageway drive as this will affect the rural aspect of the road.

The chairman thanked Mr and Mrs Morris for attending.

The Parish Council wish to request planning conditions imposed in order to:

  • Ensure the work is completed within a limited time frame in order to ensure as little disruption to the neighbours as possible
  • Ensure developers and work vehicles are parked off the road ensuring no disruption to the flow of traffic.
  • Ensure the roadway and drains are undamaged as a result of the development.
