Proposed Cllr Lowes, seconded Cllr Bilton and agreed by all to submit comments to WLDC stating the below:-

  • Proposed Cllr Pache, seconded Cllr Lowles and agreed by all to make the following comments to WLDC:
  • Insufficient on-site parking for proposed development
  • Does not comply with Dunholme neighbourhood plan.
  • The present proposed development in its current design exceeds the needs of the village.
  • No evidence to support the need for a new social space in the village
  • Will compete with village Hall.
  • Anti-social parking on narrow roads.
  • There is no clear plan or strategy for the use of a new extension. With the exception of the working spaces
  • Dunholme Village Hall will be of a similar size (should the plans be approved) has on -site parking for approximately 100 parking spaces with no immediate neighbours)
  • Statutory Nuisance - A number of nearby properties will experience these issues caused by either on-street parking or potential noise.
  • The present use of the Old School building has co-existed harmoniously with the immediate neighbours partly due to the fact the Old school has two letting rooms the Main Hall (ex-class room and a second small class room) available for casual letting with good facilities and ideal for small to medium sized gathering particularly birthday parties of all ages by various groups including residents. The applicant has indicated the desire to increase business with no strategic plan.
  • The Old School boundary backs onto immediate neighbours there is hardly any distance to dissipate and emergency exit route would be back past the building.
  • The greatest impact of the new public meeting place will be on the neighbours and surrounding roads especially in the evenings.
  • Overdevelopment of this site
  • The intention to introduce additional functions to Dunholme Old School Community will effect parking in the surrounding area due to limited parking places.
  1. To discuss and submit any comments regarding Scothern Neighbourhood Plan review

Proposed Cllr Mrs Keetley, seconded Cllr Lowes and agreed by all to submit no comments.

 

23/06/09              Village Maintenance
