An on-going issue since the aircraft hanger sized buildings have been developed. Readers can read more of previous posts via this link: https://cllrkenhawkins.co.uk/2014/06/04/planning-application-solihull-business-park/ (4 June 2014) and https://cllrkenhawkins.co.uk/2014/08/11/solihull-business-park-Monkspath/ (11 August 2014). These posts show the background to the development.
I have left following things up for two reasons; one was because I wanted to see what planting takes place to screen the premises. I also knew Solihull MBC was to appoint a new Head of Development Control; James Carpenter has recently been appointed to that position.
I have written to James carpenter (copy of letter is posted here: James Carpenter IMG_20150317_0001_NEW ). I have pointed out the problems and the pitiful amount of planting to screen the view and any noise, attaching photographs to help explain (same photographs as shown in this post).
As Cllr Jim Ryan (Planning Committee member) stated at a committee hearing, when referring to the size and nature of the proposed buildings ‘We must mitigate, mitigate, mitigate’. I will update the website as soon as I hear more. I am driven to ensure substantial and effective planting/screening will take place.
