Redevelopment of the site to provide a part 3, part 4 storey building comprising 20 flats, with associated hard and soft landscaping, car parking, cycle parking and refuse storage.

Design and access statement received.

Objection
There are only 17 car parking spaces for 20 flats. Additional building at this location will further compound the problem. Commuters to London are leaving their cars in Downsview which is a private road and already causing congestion. Houses opposite the entrance to the site in Goldsel Road have allocated parking bays. Serious consideration must be given to the lack of parking in this area and a construction management plan would also need to be set in place.

There are protected trees within the site and these should be retained.

Public rights of way must be adhered to.
