Studfold Outline application for a new dwelling

The Parish Council has written to Chorley Council planning officers with the following objections:

The Parish Council objects to this outline planning application for a number of reasons:

    Lack of information in the application ie, type, size of property, height etc
    Confusion and lack of clarification of the access drive (sketch not adequate)
    Items not included on the plans (ie, garages, out houses etc)
    Large Oak tree disruption and its protection
    Neighbouring properties privacy and boundary concerns
    Disruptions during the build
    Historic water-course problems in that area could cause damage to other properties
    Parking and access issues for the flats ie, sharing drives already

The Parish Council requests this application be considered by Committee and that the Committee attends a site visit.

The Parish Council requests the large Oak tree, on site, be put under a TPO order.
