Petition against development – Planning Application S/06/2223
We the local residents strongly appose Planning Application S/06/2223
This comprises of the demolition of 1a 9 and 11 Northern Road. Garage lockups, nursery glasshouses and erection of 31 2,3,4 bedroom dwellings and associated works - to include a new access road.
Having seen the above plans and spoken to a planning officer we are writing to express our concerns and strong objections to this proposed development.
We submit the following reasons for this objection:
RISK TO SAFETY FROM INCREASED TRAFFIC
The demolition of the 2 houses and the build of the new road and 31 dwellings will invariably cause a huge amount of noise, disruption and general disturbance to residents and commuters along the length of Northern Road.
There are 2 primary schools on this road. As this will be the main route in and out of the development, the increased traffic flow at peak times causes us great concern. In addition the local amenities will not stretch to an increased population – in particular the schools and car parking.
We fear that the added burden to the Utilities could in turn be passed onto the residents – increased Council Tax, extra demands on refuse collection, road maintenance, street cleaning and lighting, and sewage costs.
INCREASE IN NOISE, DISTURBANCE & SMELLS
The proposed road would run within feet of, and in parallel to, the full length of the rear gardens of no's 7 & 13.
This would greatly increase noise and environmental pollution levels, be a potential risk to both home and personal security due to the public highway access, and result in a loss of privacy to surrounding houses.
ADVERSE EFFECT ON TREES AND OPEN SPACE
An established tree at the front of the properties would need to be
EFFECT ON DAYLIGHT AND/OR PRIVACY
The proposed 31 dwellings - comprising of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms is extremely excessive given the space available, as well as incredibly intrusive to the existing properties - a one metre gap between our rear gardens and the new buildings is just preposterous!
We, the undersigned, call on the Swindon Borough Council to reject Planning application no S/06/2223.
This comprises of the demolition of 1a 9 and 11 Northern Road. Garage lockups, nursery glasshouses and erection of 31 2,3,4 bedroom dwellings and associated works which includes a new access road.
This petition has been signed by those residents in Northern Road, Richmond Road and Surrey Road who will be directly affected by this proposal as well as residents from the local vicinity
We look forward to your response to this petition.
