Erection of a two storey building to create a 1 x 3-bed dwelling (Use Class C3). Provision of private amenity space, car parking and bin and cycle storage.

The scale bars on both the site layout and block plans are clearly inaccurate, precluding measurement, but it appears that space for removal of bicycles from the rear garden, or for waste bins is inadequate, if the car parking spaces shown are occupied. This applies to both the proposed new dwelling, and the arrangement proposed for the existing property. Although the location of bicycle storage facilities is described in the Design & Access Statement, no indication of either location or design details is provided. Consent should be withheld pending resolution of these details.
