Comments on Application 18/00146 - Former Green Trees, Widbrook Road

Proposed garages.

We have objected previously to the demolition of an attractive Arts and Crafts style house to be replaced by another block of 12 apartments. Although permission has regretfully been granted, it was noted that the provision of adequate resident and visitor parking was a key issue. We object the proposed construction of this block of nine garages, which results in the loss of some parking spaces. Furthermore, if individual garages are used for storage, rather than residents cars - a further loss of parking capacity will ensue. The construction of garages on this site does not maximise parking potential.
