Installation of electric vehicle charging bays set to go through planning committee

Planning / Thu 3rd Jun 2021 at 09:34am

THE installation of electric vehicle charging bays at a petrol station in Staple Tye is set to go through the planning committee.

This application seeks planning permission to replace 4x existing parking spaces opposite the landscaping area with 2x electric vehicle charging bays, one of which would be disabled space. An associated electrical cabinet would be installed adjacent to the bays.

Two objection letters have been received. They object to the proposal for the following reasons:

  •   The electric charging facility would cause noise pollution, particularly from the low frequency sound emitted by the charger. This is especially problematic at summer times when the windows are opened.
  •   The proposal would encourage anti-social behaviour by ways of providing spaces for gathering, which would in turn affect the living condition of neighbouring residents
  •   The continual flow of electric vehicles using the charging facility would cause nuisances, including noises from operating the charger and light pollution from headlights.
  •   Loss of trees.

The proposal is on the agenda at the next planning meeting to be held on Tuesday June 8th at 7.30pm in the council chamber.
