MTC has no objection in principle, however the materials on the Churwell side of the station must be sympathetic to the buildings closet and it should accommodate a stone element to such elevations.  We support the Ramblers Association objections and their proposals for improvements to the footpath network.  We request that a series of TROs are drawn up to accommodate concerns the station will have an impact on local residential streets and TROs should accommodate a ‘resident only’ parking scheme and a revenue stream to support an Enforcement Officer must be part of the planning condition.  The access road must be yellow lined and accompanied with a physical barrier to prevent parking off road and remove the potential for a ‘park and ride’ scheme.  We request this application is referred to Plans Panel for final decision.

MTC objects to this planning application on the following grounds, this is clearly an attempt to get around the bedroom size standards by claiming the third (or second) bedroom on the first floor is a “study”.  This approach, which breaches the new standards being adopted on house quality, is unacceptable and a refusal decision should be made.  We also object to the reduction on three bed properties and the implementation of one bed properties.  MTC requests this application be referred to Plans Panel should an approval decision be considered.

N         20/02495  DETERMINATION FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT:  CROSSROADS SPRINGFIELD LANE/VICTORIA ROAD/BANK AVENUE/BANK SQUARE (SCATCHERD).

MTC has no objection in principle to the rear facing dormer as the rest of the Croft House estate has several such dormers to the rear.  However, we do object to the front dormer as the estate has resisted front dormers for many years.  It may be possible to overcome the significant impact on the street scene a front dormer would have if the dormer was made smaller and carried a pitched roof.

LANESIDE FARM, VICTORIA ROAD (CHURWELL).  MTC objects to this planning application.  Members agreed the amount of land allocated (1.8 hectares) for the proposed primary school is insufficient for a two-form entry.  No traffic impact assessment has been undertaken to consider the impact of a two-form entry primary school has on the vehicle movements from the rest of the estate.  Also, it was viewed that the siting of the proposed school is in the wrong location within the centre of the site.  There is an over-intensity of buildings compared with the two adjacent boundary communities, Croft Houses and Harwill estates.  The room sizes are inadequate and do not comply with recent adopted policy.  The public open spaces, in particular the area under the electricity pylon is not a usable area and the other public open spaces are not readily accessible to all.
