Demolition of existing redundant garages and associated hard standing to provide 2no. 2 bedroom houses


Dear all


I understand you have been in contact with the parish council via the clerks email address in regard to a planning application to demolish the council garages in North Way and then build two dwellings. I have also been approached by a resident expressing some concerns about this as well.

We, the DPC, will make representation on behalf of the parishioners to the SNC planning department as we are a consultee. However, I would also encourage you all to register your individual comments with the SNC which will ensure you are also included in any progress updates. 

I am fully aware of the location and would appreciate your views and comments, as soon as we receive formal notice from the SNC planning department I will organise a meeting which you are more than welcome to attend and share your views.

In the interim period it is my understanding the following points may be relevant:

1. Parking is already an issue in North Way, additional dwellings will only add to the problem.

2. The removal of approximately 15 parking spaces (garages and hard standing) will have a significant negative effect on the immediate area and possibly also Ridgmont.

3. Refuse lorries already struggle to get into North Way and have seriously damaged the public footpath in the past, given 1 and 2 above more vehicles on the road will only make it harder for services to access properties.

4. If the council garages are not being rented then perhaps consideration could be given to having them demolished and the area left as hard standing for designated resident parking as seen in the other North Way cul-de-sac, this may help alleviate existing parking problems.

5. Let us not forget the last time the local authority sold land for development in North Way, which also included the loss of parking spaces, has left residents with serious parking problems around that site opposite the old water tower site.

6.  A number of properties in the section of North Way that leads to the garage area are single occupancy, when that situation changes there is a high probability the new residents may be families with more than one vehicle which will again add to the existing problem. 

7. Two new houses may provide homes for local people.

8. The security of houses in the immediate area may be improved if the garages are demolished  and the area opened and appropriate lighting installed.

As soon as a meeting date is set i would like to be in a position to know exactly what your thoughts are around this to ensure we represent you properly and to ensure the meeting runs to schedule as there may be other applications for us to comment on. Therefore, please let me have your thoughts at your earliest opportunity so I can compile a list of points, that are acceptable in planning terms, to share with the DPC planning committee beforehand.

Obstruction of driveways

Under highway law, it is illegal to park a vehicle so that it obstructs other people wanting to use a road or path. It is also illegal to obstruct a private entrance.

Police have enforcement powers and can issue fixed penalty tickets, but officers are usually busy attending to other more serious crimes.

Users of a private entrance can take civil action for nuisance against people causing a persistent obstruction, but this process can be lengthy, expensive and unpleasant.

If you witness a parked car obstructing your driveway please contact the Police using their non-emergency telephone number 101.
