Single storey front side and rear extension and two storey rear extension. Alterations to TM/18/01104/FL

Mill Meadow House 22 Mill Lane


Whilst we have no objection to the proposed alterations to TM/18/01107/FL , subject to the Local Planning Authority’s more detailed observations, we have been asked to re confirm local residents’ concerns re the continuing environmental consequences of the actual construction. We have had representations from local residents who have been seriously affected by the approved development carried out at 22 Mill Lane, by contractors’ and suppliers’ delivery vehicles to the site using Love Lane to the south and the bridge to Mill Lane. Damage is being caused to the physical boundaries of the carriageway by such use and the apparent lack of conditions attaching to the original approval for 22 Mill Lane, TM/18/01107/FL.

If the Planning Authority decides to permit the above application we would ask that new conditions are imposed as follows:-

  1. Access to the site only from Mill Lane (north) even if this requires reversing from Tonbridge Road.
  2. The previous consultation response that the unobstructed width of Mill Lane being 5.5m does not require conditions regulating size of vehicles attending the development be revisited in view of the verge and overhanging growth now significantly affecting such a conclusion.
  3. The applicant should produce an up to date condition survey of the roads, verges, boundaries and buildings fronting Love Lane and Mill Lane to the south of the site so that the same can be reinstated by condition or legal agreement.
  4. Hours of working to be limited to normal working hours and excluding weekends to minimise periods when access to adjoining residents homes is prevented by commercial vehicles. Evenings and weekends is when this is the most disruptive to residents in Love Lane and Mill Lane
