Objections (in your own words)
The proposed development is too large to be in close proximity to residential amenities.
The proposed development only provides only 9 onsite car parking spaces for up to 300 worshippers. Based on the baseline quoted in the Travel Plan , 58% will arrive by car. This is a shortfall of nearly 165 spaces.
The local streets are protected by loading and waiting restrictions , and some yellow lines. This will leave worshippers no option but to park illegally , harming the residential amenity…and causing noise and disturbance starting at 3am.
The design does not reflect or promote local heritage or distinctiveness , and is located in a designated Conservation Area (the Crabtree and Abbeyfield Area of Special Character).
The design does not match or mirror local architecture , the majority of the dwellings in the area are faced in red brick with slate roofs. There are no domes or minarets.
The need for the proposed development is not proven.
