PUBLIC PATICIPATION

Members of the public present wished to discuss application 17/505477/FULL.

The Chairman outlined the retrospective change of use from residential annex to office building at 2 Chapel Farm Cottages, Lenham Heath Road, Lenham Heath. Concerns were highlighted relating to the increase in traffic movements and deliveries to the business set up at no: 2.  Problems for residents included inconsiderate parking, which blocks the shared access, erodes the grass verges, and dangerously narrows the road. The business has changed the character of a residential area and there are concerns the business could scale up and thereby cause more congestion and noise in a previously quiet rural setting.

 

The Chairman thanked those present for attending and opened the planning meeting at 7.45pm.
