Hybrid planning application comprising:

A full planning application for 5 buildings of up to 12,317 square meters to be used within Use Classes B1, B2 and B8 and associated works to include an access road, landscaping, car parking, servicing areas (Phase 1); and site preparation works, access, boundary treatments and associated works including engineering works (Phase 1a); and engineering works comprising site preparation works (Phase 2).

The residential properties were consulted and raised no objections. However, there are still concerns in relation to residential amenity. However, given the separation distances, features proposed and to be retained between the residential area and the development site, the main impact would potentially arise from service yard noise and potential hours of operation. To this end, the visual screening would be considered to be sufficient to mitigate general views of the site. A planning condition was proposed to require the hours of operation for the respective units in the development to be first approved before first occupation.

Note:  The decision to be Minded to Approve the application is subject to the addition of the following condition:-
