I wish to present two petitions, the first of which relates to a limited number of homes in a street in my constituency, hence it is signed by only a few neighbours. None the less, it is of importance to, and represents the views of, the people directly affected and so is of significance. I know that the inspector will carefully consider it and all the relevant facts, and make a wise decision that will be fair to all the parties involved.
The petition states:
To the House of Commons
The Petition of Mr and Mrs Hall and others,
Declares that, as the close neighbours of the development at 9B Westwood Road, Canvey Island, who are really the only ones directly affected by the issue, we support the building alterations and are happy for the new roof extension on the property to remain and do not feel that it destroys the street scene in any way and that it would be disproportionate to force the removal of the alterations.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to respect the views of those living in the surrounding houses and to approve the appeal.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
