We had some initial concerns in respect of this application in respect of any change of use, particularly increased HGV traffic through local communities, noise and light pollution, and having considered the detail, we will be making representation. A copy of the represntation can be found in the documents and representations library.
It is of note that officers due to the number of objections referred it to MKC with a recommendation to accept. We consider that the reasons given were unsound. However MKC refused the application.
