A NUMBER of residents in Burnett Park have objected to a planning bid in their estate.
The application is for the erection of single storey dwelling with associated car parking and landscaping, and alterations to existing dwelling.
The application is to build a bungalow on the southern part of the plot – the plot would have a width of approximately 16 metres. An existing garage serving no. 4 on this part of the site would be demolished.
The bungalow would be roughly t-shaped. The longer arm of the “t” would be at right angles to Burnett Park and towards the northern side of the plot with the shorter arm having a hipped roof and projecting towards Parsloe Road. The plans show a brick plinth with render above. The roof would be tiled. Two parking spaces would be provided in front of the new bungalow to serve it and two would be built in front of the existing one to replace the provision lost by removing the garage and hardstanding.
Residents objections are as follows
Local resident – three dwellings on one plot would be too high density, precedent for over development, out of character with Burnett Park as a whole, noise from traffic in proposed bedroom adjacent to Parsloe Road.
Local resident – own property would overlook proposed house’s living accommodation.
Local resident – another building would crowd the site, setting a precedent, four parking spaces for two dwellings would be unsatisfactory, increased danger to “public pathway” users (It is not clear to what issue the last part of the objection relates).
The application will be heard at 7.30pm on Wednesday July 3rd at the Civic Offices, Water Gardens.
