Petition Tag - planning permission
It has been proposed that a new scout hut is built in Myton Fields.
Whilst an excellent resource, this new structure is likely to create noise and traffic nuisance for Myton Road residents as well as compromising the rear open aspect to their properties.
The Tory Housing Minister has decided to scrap the need to apply for planning permission to convert a home to a house in multiple occupation (HMO). This means that Reading landlords no longer need to apply to the Council to convert houses where the property is occupied by less than six unrelated individuals who share one or more basic amenities (and vice versa).
The Government is saying that Councils can impose their own controls locally, Reading is still ‘awaiting further advice from central Government’ about how to do this! The Coalition has opened up a great big yawning gap in controls through which dodgy landlords will be rushing to establish new HMO’s without any need to consult or even inform neighbours.
Many people, in East Reading in particular, live in streets where house after house has been made into an HMO, many of them poorly managed and poorly maintained. We want to make sure that any conversions are of a decent standard with proper fire safety precautions.
We are opposing attempts to build housing estates on Green Belt land within our village. The plans are neither in keeping with the community or required by the community and are viewed as a profit making scheme and nothing else.
There are enough Brown Field sites in the UK to support our housing needs for the forseeable future so any attempts to build on Green Belt should be strongly opposed. Save our Green Belt!
'Hanham's Ground is two hectares of open green land used as a cricket field since 1793, adjacent to the River Allen, and close to the centre of the historic Dorset Minster Town of Wimborne. For several years, Waitrose have been trying to acquire the site in order to build a supermarket.
Despite strong local opposition demonstrated by several local petitions, East Dorset District Council perversely granted planning permission in February 2009 and construction on the site commenced during January 2010.
The land is adjacent to the River Allen, a Biodiversity Action Plan Habitat, and home to otters, rare white-clawed crayfish, water voles and other wildlife. There are grounds for believing that measures taken by the developer are inadequate to protect the water from harmful pollution. A significant proportion of the development site lies within a flood plain.
Hanham’s Ground lies within a Conservation Area and the developer has failed to demonstrate that the supermarket will harmonize with existing town centre buildings, in accordance with the district council’s own Planning Guidance. The change of use from an open green playing field to a supermarket and two-level car park, will irreversible affect the character of the town centre.
The site lies close to a busy road that is already congested at peak times. The provision of an additional 215 parking spaces is estimated to increase traffic by 2000 vehicles per day.
This Petition to the County Council must be submitted by 19 March 2010.
Bristol Barbarians own 11 1/2 acres of land off Norton Lane in Whitchurch, Bristol, BS14 0BT and wish to build a permanent clubhouse to replace their current portacabins which act as a bar and revenue generator for the club.
Planning permission have been denied by BANES council in the past and the club would like the backing of the local community to build a new clubhouse on our land to secure both the financial as well as current status of the club.
To appeal against to refused planning permission which was turned down as the development would adversely affect the amenities enjoyed by nearby residents, and thus the character of the surrounding area, as a result of the additional activity created outside the building, particularly in the evenings and at weekends.
The supermarket chain Tesco has applied for planning permission to rebuild their store in Slough, Berkshire. Their current proposal would result in the cutting down of a Cedar Tree.
This tree is around 150 years old and is not a common variety. This is a species called Cedrus libani (Cedar of Lebanon) and there are probably fewer than 500 decent specimens of this species in the whole of the UK. This tree is also protected by a Tree Preservation Order which can only be overruled by the planning committee of Slough Borough Council.
We believe that Slough Borough Council should deny this present planning permission and request that Tesco should re-submit proposals and plans that conserve and preserve this tree.
