Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members were informed of the receipt of a petition objecting to planning application 10/21/1312 Change of use of first floor from E(G)(i) Offices to F1(a) Educational Class Rooms (retrospective)’ at First Floor 49-51 Preston New Road, Blackburn BB2 6AE.

 

The planning application (10/21/1312) was received by the Local Planning Authority (LPA) on 24th November 2021. On 31st November 2021 65 neighbourhood letters of consultation were sent.

 

The Petition was received by the LPA on 16th December 2021, containing 15 signatures. The Petition objects to the application on the grounds of highway impacts arising from large volumes of cars entering New Park Street, which is a Cul-de-sac. It is alleged that vehicles associated with the Madressa use double park along New Park Street, obstructing the entrance / exit of the car park at the rear of New Park Street, and occupy the car park associated with Kaspas and the Queen Vic Chippery, during drop off and pick times. Anti-social behaviour, including abuse and damage to vehicles, warranting Police intervention, is also alleged.

 

Members were advised that assessment of the planning application is ongoing and that all material matters that must be considered in the decision making process will be addressed. This includes highway impacts arising from the use. An officer recommendation will be available in due course. The statutory 8 week determination date expires 19th January 2022, though a decision may fall outside of this timescale, in the event of a mutually accepted extension of time.

 

RESOLVED – That the petition be noted.
