7.1 Applications
1.
17/02212/VARY Removal of condition 3 of planning permission 16/00935/FUL (Erection of two units comprising 10,901 square metres (GIA) for use within Use Classes B2/B8 (with ancillary B1), provision of car parking (136 spaces), and associated servicing, landscaping and infrastructure. (Outline Permission has already been granted for the development under SDC reference 13/00510/OUT)).

At Wellesbourne Distribution Park , Loxley Road For Mr A McGuigan Griffen Development
Case Officer Louise Koelman By 31 August 2017
The Council strongly object to this application as the proposed buffers against noise and light pollution for a 24 hour 7 days a week operation would be insufficient. The Council considered the hours of operation already extensive and across 7 days a week late into the evening, extension of this would cause immeasurable harm to adjacent residents who would endure unacceptable noise and light pollution during hours of rest and sleep. This would also cause harm to the environment and wildlife in a rural village.
Several complaints concerning breaches of the conditions where HGVs were being jet washed or unloaded during early hours of the morning have been raised against the Distribution Park historically, as well as lorries missing the entrance due to SAT NAV taking them to the wrong entrance forcing HGVs to turn around in Dovehouse Drive/Loxley Road, with extended hours these problems would continue and it would be difficult/impossible for residents to sleep.
2.

At Kings Head Hotel For Mitchell’s and Butlers Plc
Case Officer James Hodgkins By 8 September 2017
Whilst the Council support the improvement to the inside amenity as it enhances a much needed facility to the village, Councillors raised concerns relating to the one way system as all egress from the property would be at the already overly congested junction of

Hoppers Lane, Warwick Road, Old Warwick Road, the shop layby and garage and petrol station based at this junction. Councillors felt the access egress should be swapped to enable vehicles to enter at the busy junction and exit from the other end, although it was noted this exit was on a steep incline. Similarly, the area at the rear of the Kings Head is currently used beyond capacity on occasion blocking the main entrance to the Church and Church rooms. This area should not become further congested and the suggestion by the applicant that there is potential Blue Badge Parking is totally unjustified. The Kings Head also has its bins out on this area, no provision has been shown by the applicant as to where the bins will be displaced to or how the new main entrance will be shielded from the bins and their associated odours.
