A change of use application lodged to convert an empty shop in Brands Hill to a pizza parlour looks set to reignite the debate about the “imbalance” of fast foot outlets in the village.
In a strongly worded objection Colnbrook’s Councillor Walsh says the proposed takeaway at 590 London Road would be “a nuisance to neighbours whose homes are already blighted by traffic” with inevitable “issues with rubbish, noise and odours which are simply not appropriate in this part of the village.”
News reaches Colnbrook Views of a planning application submitted for a new Kebab shop at Brands Hill.
A Colnbrook car sales and valet service is trying again for planning permission for its current operations. The site on the Old Bath Road, previously the location of a bungalow called Theale, has operated without permission for the last few years and was subject to an Enforcement Notice. The company lost its appeal in 2012 and believes improved access arrangements will enable it to win over concerns.
Councillors will be asked to approve halting the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan at the first Parish Council meeting of the New Year next week, just as 7 “neighbourhood” designations look set to be approved in the neighbouring Royal Borough. The meeting will take place at the Village Hall on Tuesday 8th January 2013, commencing at 7.30pm.
The CCA is looking for feedback from the village on the application lodged to turn the recently closed RED LION Public House in the High Street into a mixed retail/residential outlet. We know of many residents who object to this and have registered their views with SBC on firstname.lastname@example.org
