Mount Dairy Farm - Phase One

Planning Application – PL/2015/51811/PPRM
Note; Closing date for objections is 9th September!
Phase 1 Development of 95 dwellings; Appearance, Landscaping, Layout and Scale for consideration. The CGRA have discussed and considered the above application; the result of which is that we believe that the application should be refused on the following grounds
There is only 30% social housing in this area, which means that to achieved the required 40% target one of the remaining plots, lower down the slope, will need to have approximately 50% social housing. The Social housing will, by default, have a greater amount of hard landscaping which will therefore mean that any water run-off have less chance of soaking into the ground en-route to the river Blythe and could therefore exacerbate exiting flood problems
There appears to be insufficient car parking facilities; given that the lack of transport infrastructure; most, if not all households, will have one or more cars. The development will be blighted by parked cars and congestion.
