Petition against development on 71 Bower way site

We the undersigned petition the council to We the undersigned petition the council to consider our concerns with the planning application P-19187-002 (71 Bower Way). We strongly oppose the overall three and a half storey height of all the proposed dwellings in the development as it is not in keeping and is out of place in relation to the surrounding area. It would be more in keeping with its neighbours if they were all bungalows except the dwelling to the front of the plot which is currently 2 storeys.

The development is not in keeping with the well-established, quiet, local area and does not consider the significant impact on its neighbours in Deena Close.
Residents' outlook in Masons road will become unacceptably closed in with buildings of such height. They are over-bearing and will create an unacceptable loss of privacy to surrounding properties. The impact on outlook will also directly affect residents' enjoyment of their properties. There will be significant impact on light and noise levels.

There has been a bat survey undertaken which found a presence of bats in the area but it was not undertaken at the suggested optimal time of year to detect their roosts. There was no mention of slow worms in the environmental survey which have been seen around the area. More investigation should be undertaken to satisfy the exclusion of both before any development takes place.
