An interesting planning application came up this week; a proposal to create a 90 child nursery, with associated car parking, on land we know as Joseph House (near to the island on Stratford Road at Monkspath Hall Road – opposite to the hotel).
For ease I have posted the proposed site plan here:
Other documents relating to this application can be read via this link: https://publicaccess.solihull.gov.uk/online-applications/simpleSearchResults.do?action=firstPage
My initial concerns relate to:
- The number of car parking spaces – are 23 enough for the proposed 90 pupils?
- Encroachment onto the green belt
- Effect/possible constraint of published proposals under the Local Development Plan re site 12
- Development of children nursery so close to main road and potential effect of air quality on young lives.
Any thoughts? Please do so here or email me.
