Whilst the Parish Council has no objection appearance  siting and general layout of the proposal we have concerns re the actual construction of the proposed extensions,  We have representations from local residents who have been seriously affected by the development approved and being carried out at 22 Mill Lane

If the planning Authority decided to permit the above application we wold as that conditions are imposed as follows:

  • Access to the site only from Mill Lane (north) even if this requires reversing from Tonbridge Road
  • The previous suggestion 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 very and overhanging growth now significantly reducing such as assessment
  • The applicant should produce a 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 of legal agreement
  • Hours of working to be limited to normal working hours an excluding weekends to minimise the periods when access to adjoining homes is prevented by commercial vehicles. Evening sand weekend is when this is the most disruptive to residents in Love Lane and Mill Lane
