To inform Members of the receipt of a petition objecting to a current planning application (ref. 10/21/1397 for the proposed change of use from a dwelling (Use Class C3) to a café (Use Class E (a/b) at 117 Whalley Range, Blackburn.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members were informed of the receipt of a petition objecting to a current planning application (ref. 10/21/1397 for the proposed change of use from a dwelling (Use Class C3) to a café (Use Class E (a/b) at 117 Whalley Range,

Blackburn. The application was submitted by AA Properties (Blackburn) Ltd.

 

The planning application was received by the Local Planning Authority (LPA) on 17th December 2021, and was subsequently registered on 29th December 2021, after previously being made invalid due to insufficient plans being submitted. Neighbour consultation letters were sent out on the date of registration to 7 addresses local to the application site. A Site Notice was also displayed in close proximity to the proposal building which also advertised the application.

 

The Petition was received by the LPA on 18th January 2022. The Petition objects to the application on the grounds of highway impacts, pointing out due to lack of parking in the area it is suspected vehicles will park illegally to the front of the site. Reference was also made that concerns over parking had the potential to cause increased anti-social behaviour between driver’s resultant of vehicles impeding the road network. Other matters alleged include increased noise disturbance associated with the proposed use, privacy concerns given the relationship of windows and fly tipping / environmental problems.

 

The petition contained 16 signatures, directly from nearby addresses on Whalley Range and Snow Street.

 

Members were advised that assessment of the planning application was ongoing and that all material issues that must be considered in the decision making process will be addressed. Should the application be recommended for approval, it will be reported to the Planning and Highways Committee for determination. Alternatively, the application may be refused under delegated officer powers.

 

RESOLVED – That the petition be noted.
