PET510          PUBLIC FORUM
                There were eleven members of the public present.

                Those members of the public present wished to comment on the planning
                application at Medleys, Comptons Brow Lane (DC/07/0979).                The
                comments made expressed concern at the high density of the proposal, the
                impact on the streetscape, the intrusion into residents’ existing privacy.
                Traffic issues were also of concern and residents commented that there were
                already parking difficulties in Comptons Brow Lane and the surrounding
                area. Other residents expressed their concern that should the application be
                permitted, this would set a precedent for further similar developments.

                Members commented that it would be helpful if some of the contributions to
                Transport infrastructure from developer funding could be channelled
                towards the provision of Bus Services to the Doctor’s Surgery in Holbrook,
                even if by way of a diverted route.
