What to say when you object:-

The proposed development is far too large and overbearing in terms of mass and scale.

The proposed development does not match local architecture and construction materials.

The proposed development does not promote or enhance local character and distinctiveness.In particular the proposed development will have a serious impact on the Grecian Mill complex, which has a Grade II listing. “Where a proposed development will lead to substantial harm to or total loss of significance of a designated heritage asset, local planning authorities should refuse permission (NPPF)”

The proposed development has insufficient onsite parking to accommodate the 500 car users (based on a 1200 capacity and a 47% modal share). This will force worshipers to park in nearby residential streets (mainly Rigby Court and Ninehouse Lane)  affecting highway safety and traffic flow. The demolition of the existing building will create extra parking. This will generate at least an extra 400 trips daily, bringing the local road network to a standstill.

The proposed development has insufficient onsite parking to accommodate the recommended 500 car spaces (based on a 1200 capacity and a 47% modal share). This will force worshipers to park in nearby residential streets  (mainly Rigby Court and Ninehouse Lane), and cause noise and disturbance to the residential amenity. Based on the applicants latest figures the capacity could be as high as 2,500…requiring nearly 1200 spaces.
