TBS response: OBJECT

Recommendation submitted 17-10-17

We are concerned that the proposed dwelling is extremely tight on the site, but our main concern is regarding the off-street parking bay which is 10/11m wide, ugly and impractical.

99 Radnor RoadIt would result in the loss off the boundary enclosure and the grass verge and in turn reduce the size of the garden of no.99 unreasonably. We suggest that in this case it would be better to maximise the size of the garden and maintain on-street parking.

Mr gavin sanders 78 MAPLE ROAD BRISTOL   OBJECT

As neighbours we wish to strongly object to the proposed development on the followinggrounds:

1/ it significantly changes the amenity of the neighbourhood

2/ the government National Planning Policy Framework Appendix 2, updated Dec 2016 expressly'excludes new development in private residential gardens' in order to protect built upneighbourhoods from 'garden grabbing'

3/ The development would impose extra shadow across the side and front of our propertyespecially on winter mornings

4/ Loss of green verge that will alter the character of the neighbourhood

5/loss of verge and garden leading to increased water run off, strain on drainage and increasedflooding risk

6/Car Parking - extra dropped curb means less parking for existing residents and more pressureon an already saturated maple and radnor roads. We already often cant get out of our drivebecause of cars parked too close/over our drive due to pressure on space.

7/ we feel strongly that the increased housing density will impact on the neighbourhood amenityand quality of life for our neighbourhood

8/loss of mature tree and garden will affect important wildlife including bats.
