Pamington Lane Development: Petition to stop additional traffic through the Village

photo 2In the conversations I have been having with Residents, it is clear that there is concern that the potential rise in traffic which would come from new homes at this site would be considerable, bearing in mind that many journeys from the site are likely to be made to Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham and further afield following the A435 South, or alternatively Eastwards along the A46 for Stow, Evesham and again further, avoiding the junction by Ashchurch Camp.

I have already raised this point directly with Gloucestershire Highways during the Consultation Period and know that these concerns are widely shared. However, I do intend to raise it again when I intend to speak at the TBC Planning Meeting on Tuesday 3rd March when the Application will be going to the Committee for Determination.

I have today been asked to publicise a new online petition which has been set up, asking Tewkesbury Borough Council to consider the impact of the proposed Pamington Lane development on traffic through the Village when the Planning Committee makes its decision on the Application.

If you would like to support the Petition, please click here.

The Application can be found on the TBC Planning Portal using Planning Reference 14/00972/OUT.

I have just received the List for the Applications which will be considered at the next Meeting of Tewkesbury Borough Council’s Planning Committee, which will be held at 9.00am on Tuesday 3rd March 2015, at the Council Offices, Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury.

The Application concerning the Pamington Lane development (Linden Homes) is listed – Ref 14/00972/OUT and is likely to be considered immediately after both of the outstanding Applications which relate to the unauthorised construction at Starveall Farm – Ref 14/00873/APP (For the dwelling) and Ref 14/00770/FUL (for the additional farm buildings).

From the notes I have been given, I understand that the Officer Recommendation for the Application (which is for Outline Permission) is to Permit.

(Please note that Officer Recommendations may not reflect the decision of the Planning Committee on the day.)

I hope to speak at the Planning Meeting when all these Applications are considered and intend to reflect the comments and concerns that have been raised with me about the proposal and its impact on Pamington and the local area when I do.

If you have anything that you would like to bring to my attention that you believe you may not have already done so concerning this Application, please do e-mail me on councillor.tugwell@tewkesbury.gov.uk .

The Planning Meeting will be open to the general public and seating is available in the Public Gallery. Please go to Reception when you arrive, if you are planning to attend.

At an extraordinary Meeting of Tewkesbury Borough Council next week, Councillors will be asked to approve the Draft Tewkesbury Borough Plan (TBP) for 2011 – 2031.

Developed to run alongside the still-to-be confirmed Joint Core Strategy, once adopted, the TBP will provide the Planning Policy framework for the Borough’s Planning Department until 2031.

Once the Draft has been approved by the Council, it will then be put out to Public Consultation before it can formally be adopted, probably in 2016.

If you would like to read the Draft Tewkesbury Borough Plan and the supporting Reports which are being considered at next week’s Meeting, you can follow this link or click the download at the bottom of this page.

I plan to attend the Meeting, which will be held at the Council Offices, Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury. GL20 5TT, on Tuesday 10th February 2015, at 6.00pm, and will be happy to discuss any comments from Ashchurch with Walton Cardiff Residents or Representatives of Businesses or Organisations from the Ward between now and then. The Meeting is open to the Public if you would like to attend.

I can be contacted by e-mail on councillor.tugwell@tewkesbury.gov.uk or alternatively, I will be present at the Meeting of Wheatpieces Parish Council which is scheduled for this evening, Thursday 5th February, and able to speak either before the Meeting starts at 7.00pm, or once the Borough Councillor’s Report has been completed.
