Planning application reference PL/2017/01594 refers and the link to the councils planning portal, where full documentation can be accessed is shown here: https://publicaccess.solihull.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=ORSRQMOE01100
I have posted links to some of the major documents here, but as there are 54 in all (at the time of this post) you are advised to review the documents at your own leisure:
Planning Statement: PL_2017_01594_MAJFOT-PLANNING_STATEMENT-729896
Travel Plan: PL_2017_01594_MAJFOT-TRAVEL_PLAN-729903
Ecologic Appraisal: PL_2017_01594_MAJFOT-ECOLOGICAL_APPRAISAL-729890
The formal consultation expiration date is 25 July. Please get in touch with me is you have any views, concerns or otherwise regarding this application. The documents have only recently been downloaded onto the council planning portal and it will obviously take a while to take every thing in.
