Regardless of ‘seriously considering’ interesting the committee’s determination — which went towards council planning officers’ suggestions — applicants DN Associates and arranging agent Andrew White say they have determined changes that would assistance lessen problems.
In the previous strategies, accessibility would have been via two streets on the estate. A 3rd has now been identified by means of the following doorway Ash Lane advancement.
