Under the proposal parking provision will remain unchanged and new flats will mean more cars parking on the roadside. This may also have an affect on road safety; the current level of parking on the north side of Waterloo Road exiting the site is already hazardous.
I have asked that the decision be made by the Council's planning committee. The application will be heard by the Planning Panel on Tuesday 7th June between 11:30am and 12:30pm. This is a public meeting and all are welcome to attend and speak.
The Council officer recommendation is to approve the application with conditions. It is my intention to speak against the application at the meeting.
