Yet another planning application for the redevelopment of St Johns Hall on Wick Road. Smaller in size than the previous two (withdrawn) applications but the concerns over access/egress so close to a primary school still remain. The plans still show proposed access as being 4m wide and wide enough for two cars to pass. The actual width is 3.25m at its widest point and can only just fit a transit van in at its narrowest point!

The developers have only notified a small number of residents of this application so please share and comment away.
