APPLICATIONS

 

 

 

a

MC2008/0684 & MC2008/0687: Tudor Rose, High Street, Upnor: Listed building consent for the demolition of timber lean-to at rear of house. Erection of a free-standing timber frame structure to garden (smoking shelter). Crowning of 3 trees.

 

No objection

 

 

 

b

MC2008/0066: Land adj 1 Benenden Road, Wainscott: Outline application for the construction of a new detached 2-storey dwelling

 

After discussion, it was agreed to object as follows:

 

Frindsbury Extra Parish Council objects to this application on highway and access grounds. The site is in an elevated position, at the top of a steep bank. Pedestrian access would have to be created by means of steps and access would be unsuitable or impossible for a disabled person. For a parking space to be created, the bank would have to be excavated. Access from the road would be on a distinct bend in the road, created by the alteration to the road by the roadworks undertaken in the last 10 years at the junction of the A228 and the Medway Tunnel approach road. Parked cars on this new stretch are already of aggravation to local residents due to the enforced narrowing of the road by the parked cars. A vehicle leaving such a parking space on the bend would cause added difficulty. The parking space shown on the plans at 1 Benenden Road does not exist, therefore no precedent has been set.
