Planning and Development (Essex)

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

The Petition of residents of Stanway Road and surrounding areas,

Declares that we are strongly opposed to the proposed plans application CPT/2/10/FUL to further extend the boundary fencing and gates of the business operating at 77 Stanway Road and believe that if the council pass these plans it will further spoil the appearance of the area, will result in more commercial traffic and street parking in this area, more noise and disturbance to us and will allow the business at 77 to further dominate the area.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to encourage Castle Point Borough Councillors, Essex County Councillors and the Highways Authority, to take urgent and tough action to immediately end the improper land grabbing and fencing off of highway land in this otherwise quiet and respectable residential area and take appropriate action to force the business back to the proper boundaries for this site, in the wider public interest.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Bob Spink, Official Report, 9 February 2010; Vol. 505, c. 884.]

[P000734]
